During her training, she earned two Magis Star awards for excellence in clinical care and the Department of Urology Academic Achievement Award.

Dr. Koehne was inspired by her mentors and patients to pursue a career in urologic oncology and looks forward to serving the people of her new community. Her research focuses on understanding the interaction of the immune system with urologic cancers and developing strategies to predict and improve responses to therapy.

Outside of work, Dr. Koehne enjoys hiking, jogging, and taking her two dogs for long walks with her husband.
