WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

After a fulfilling career in critical care nursing, I became a nurse practitioner (NP) who specializes in cardiology because I know what it is like to be the family member of a heart patient. I enjoy partnering with patients to help them fully understand and successfully manage their disease, and I enjoy the challenge of diagnosis. I have an incredible team of physicians, advanced practice providers, and nurse colleagues who care for patients as they would their own family members. My career at Duke is varied and fulfilling: I manage and advocate for nurse practitioners and physician assistants; I mentor novice NPs; and I teach in the Duke University School of Nursing. My oldest daughter is a Duke NP, and my youngest is a Duke RN, all within the Duke Heart Center. In my spare time, I play the flute in orchestras and chamber groups.
