Dr. Kenkre treats patients with all types of lymphoma, a blood cancer, including Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. As part of the cellular therapy group team, she provides care for people who need a bone marrow transplant or CAR T-cell therapy.

Dr. Kenkre finds the field of hematology to be a fulfilling specialty because she can help people through their treatment. Though the care she provides is very clinical, she believes compassion is key. She enjoys getting to know each of her patients in order to tailor their care to best meet their needs and preferences.

In addition to her clinical and teaching roles, Dr. Kenkre is involved with clinical research trials for people with lymphoma.

In her free time, Dr. Kenkre enjoys traveling and spending time with her children.

Even though the medical part of what I do is very clinical, getting to know each person’s experiences and expectations allows me to tailor their care to fit their unique needs.
