Dr. Levoy is a registered nurse with certifications in oncology nursing and nursing education. Dr. Levoy’s research interest is in improving patient and caregiver preparation for the end of life, an interest which arose from a decade of experience working with patients and families affected by cancer. Her research focuses on how preparation for the end-of-life through methods such as advance care planning, serious illness communication or palliative care delivery impacts patient transitions to end-of-life care and caregiver transitions to bereavement.

Dr. Levoy earned both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and her doctoral degree in nursing from the University of Miami. Dr. Levoy completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at the NewCourtland Center for Transitions and Health at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing.
