Martha Norling, Nursing Manager
I love working in this field and especially in this office. A cancer diagnosis can be one of the most frightening experiences in someone’s lifetime. It is incredibly fulfilling to be able to educate, guide and support people through this journey. I greatly value the relationships I have formed with patients over my 12 years here at Marin Cancer Care. This office is filled with positive, caring and professional people. The culture of the treatment center is very patient-focused and I am proud to be a member of the care team.

Leesa Helmlinger, RN
I like working at Marin Cancer Care because no day is ever the same. Every day, I am presented with new challenges and situations, which really helps me to stay focused and interested. I love that I am able to give my patients the best care.
Leslie Huizenga, RN
Marin Cancer Care is a special place. It’s a place to come for answers, for direction and for hope. That’s why I love working here. It is a place filled with hope. We meet people at a vulnerable, scary time and wrap them in care and compassion. It is an incredible honor and privilege to care for our patients, to be part of their journey and help them navigate through so many unknowns.
Jana Kelly, RN
I went to nursing school at UCSF and worked inpatient on the hematology/oncology unit at Stanford throughout school. After graduating, an Advance Practice position opened up here in Radiation Oncology, and I decided to shift gears and learn something new. I’ve been here for 8 1/2 years and I love my job. I consider myself lucky to work with such an amazing team of healthcare professionals, and our patients definitely notice the difference in the quality of care we provide. I am married and have two sons. In our downtime, we love to spend time at the California Academy of Sciences.
