WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a family medicine doctor, I strive to create strong partnerships with my patients and empower them to take an active role in their healthcare. Together, we will set health goals and develop strategies to achieve healthy living. I was drawn to family medicine for its variety and I enjoy working with patients of all ages and backgrounds, including the LGBT population. My interests include women's health, sports medicine, nutrition and wellness. I am passionate about population health, healthcare disparities, improving access to quality healthcare and social determinants of health. In my free time, I enjoy spending as much time a s possible outdoors - whether it be running, swimming, cheering on a Duke athletic team or simply exploring all that Durham has to offer.
