WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I see a wide variety of internal medicine patients with a range of health problems, from common conditions such as hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, and thyroid problems, to complicated health issues. I enjoy the unique opportunity in primary care to build relationships with my patients over many years. My interest in medicine started while in elementary school. My inspiration was my mother, a physician herself. I was able to witness first-hand both the many lives she touched and the personal satisfaction she gained from being a physician. I joined Duke Primary Care in 2010, and have enjoyed my practice immensely. Outside my medical practice, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children. I also enjoy running, biking, hiking, yoga and I love to read books, fiction mostly. I am passionate about cooking, and have experimented with a variety of cuisines.
