About Cassilly Besten Yozwiak:

 I began my journey working in radiation oncology in 2019 as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN).  Coming from a family with roots heavily in accounting, I realized early on that I wanted to go a different direction and become a nurse.  I received my BSN from the University of South Carolina in 2012, and spent over 7 years working as an inpatient nurse in the areas of Medical and Surgical Oncology, Gynecologic Oncology, Hospice, and Palliative Care.  In 2019, I received my Doctorate of Nursing Practice degree from the University of Kentucky.  I am passionate about preventative cancer screening, and focused much of my schooling on speaking with providers about colorectal cancer screening in a primary care clinic.  I am a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.  My fiancé and I have a Shar-Pei named Napoleon and a cat named Blue.  We love hiking, entertaining guests, and traveling.  My favorite place I have been is Northern Ireland.  My personal goals include expanding our family and becoming a better cook.  You may meet me during inpatient consultations, at your outpatient follow-up, or in various other capacities around the clinic.  I’m very fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful team!
