Kaitlyn Hegarty, RN, BSN, OCN

Oncology Nurse Navigator

Kaitlyn joined Life with Cancer at Inova Fair Oaks in 2019 as an Oncology Nurse Navigator. Kaitlyn earned her Bachelor’s degree at University of Maryland Medical Center in Nursing in 2015. Before joining Life with Cancer, Kaitlyn cared for adults diagnosed with Leukemia and Lymphoma on a specialized Hematology/Oncology inpatient unit in Baltimore, Maryland.

Kaitlyn’s desire to advocate, educate, and care for cancer patients started at the young age of 14 years old while she assisted her mother in caring for her aunt who was battling lung cancer. She has a special place in her heart for oncology patients because she has witnessed the impact a diagnosis can have on a person’s emotional, financial, and psychosocial well-being. In her free time, Kaitlyn loves to spend quality time with her daughter exploring new places.
