WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am an optometrist who works collaboratively with clinicians in the cornea division at Duke Health. I provide comprehensive eye exams, co-manage pre- and post-operative visits for corneal, cataract, and refractive surgeries and treat dry eye disease. The science of vision and the eye fascinate me. I truly enjoy being able to help patients understand their visual system and how it works, as well as diagnose and treat their ocular conditions. I am passionate about providing information to patients to help improve both their ocular and overall health. When not at work, I’m keeping up with the busy schedules of my two boys as well as volunteering in local organizations, trying to garden, and often exploring my local library for my next great read.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research interests lie in dry eye disease and sight-threatening corneal conditions, such as keratoconus, neurotrophic keratitis, and various corneal dystrophies. Increasing further understanding of these conditions can lead to new techniques and medications to help patients alleviate the symptoms and potentially restore sight impacted by them.
