Lisa Gauchay, LCSW

Lisa is a licensed clinical social worker who is a part of the breast cancer team at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. As a young child, Lisa was in and out of hospitals due to a congenital spinal defect that caused her to have various surgeries. She always wished that she had access to more social and emotional support as she was going through her own medical treatment, and feels as though her childhood experience clarified her career decision as a medical social worker. 

After losing her own mother to cancer as a young adult, she understands the experience of her clients on a personal level. Lisa is focused on providing necessary social and emotional support for her patients and their families as they travel through their breast cancer journey.
