Employee Testimonials

When I think of Roswell Park, I think of all the awesome people that I’ve met here – survivors, caregivers, employees, and volunteers. Everyone at “The Park” is united by a shared Mission. I personally love what I do because I get to work with a tremendous team of dedicated individuals, and together we get to serve some of the most inspiring people anyone could ever meet!

I walk into Roswell with a smile on my face every day. I love being part of the team and knowing that we all contribute to the same goal of living in a world without cancer, no matter what our role is here. We all participate in different and important ways, but together we are a strong team! There is no place I would rather be than here at Roswell Park.

Kathryn Glaser, MA, PhD, Assistant Professor of Oncology, Department of Cancer Prevention and Control

Working at Roswell Park, I have the opportunity to work with world class scientists and clinicians with a deep understanding of the basic mechanisms of cancer and how to translate that understanding into novel therapeutic strategies. In addition, we have an outstanding and vibrant graduate education program that affords me the opportunity to work with inspiring and motivated students while helping to train the next generation of scientists.

There are so many great things about working at Roswell. I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to work here alongside some of the most caring and dedicated nurses, physicians, scientists and staff who genuinely care about the work they do and make a difference every day. I value all the relationships I have built over the years and appreciate the abundant opportunity to learn and grow.

Sudha Bommidi, Executive Director, Clinical Services

My role provides many opportunities and challenges to positively impact the quality of care and research as well as the patient, visitor and staff experience. I am grateful for the outstanding medical care it has given my family and friends. Roswell Park is a great place to work and I am blessed to serve its mission.

Anthony Putrelo, Assistant Vice President, Planning

Well, I have always said that Roswell Park takes wonderful care of cancer patients, but it also takes care of its employees and their families very well. It is a two way street - - I am a happy employee because I am grateful to have such a rewarding job that allows me to take care of my family and then I am a happy mom and wife because, yes I am a working mom, but it is not taking a toll on our family time.

Carrie Andruszko, Clinical Data Manager

I have been at Roswell Park for almost 18 years. It has been an extremely fulfilling experience to take care of our wonderful patients and their families in a truly collaborative environment. I have also had the opportunity to grow professionally and extend the Roswell Park brand of care to my home country, Nigeria! I look forward to many more years of discovery, innovation and warm, empathetic patient care.

Chukwumere Nwogu, MD, PhD, FAC, Department of Thoracic Surgery

I enjoy coming to work every day knowing that what I do makes a positive impact on the lives of our patients, staff and visitors.
