click here to see Stephanie Filson’s curriculum vitae.

Stephanie graduated from the University of San Francisco with a Master’s Entry program for Clinical Nurse Leader.  After working years as a Registered Nurse in oncology in both inpatient and outpatient facilities, she went back to school at UCSF for a post-Master’s certification to become a Nurse Practitioner.  She is now a board-certified Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner and completed all her clinical training in the Bay Area at various major medical centers.  She happily joined the California Cancer Care practice in March 2015.

A strong patient advocate, Stephanie believes in an evidence-based practice and helping her patients make the best decisions for their care.  She will always have her patient’s best interest at heart.  For her, a team approach includes not only the physician and nurses, but the patient and family members as well.  She loves oncology because new scientific research and therapies are constantly being discovered and it will always be a learning experience.

Originally from New York, Stephanie has been living in the Bay Area since 1997.  She is married and was super lucky to have boy/girl twins.  She loves being outdoors and is an avid rock climber, hiker, traveler, and skier.  She is also an active participant in the local twin parent support group.
