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 am fulfilled by partnering with my patients to help them fully understand and successfully manage their disease, and I enjoy the challenge of diagnosis. I work with 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: in addition to providing direct patient care, I manage and advocate for nurse practitioners and physician assistants in the Advanced Practice Office, I mentor novice nurse practitioners, and I teach in the Duke University School of Nursing. We are a family of Nurse Practitioners - My oldest daughter is a Duke nurse practitioner, and my youngest is a UNC nurse practitioner. In my spare time, I am empty-nesting but enjoying my three dogs, and enjoy kayaking and restoring old houses.
