WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Community and Family Medicine at Duke University and serve as an academic coordinator in the Physician Assistant program. I teach across a spectrum of topics including anatomy, orthopedics, pulmonology, neurology, pediatrics and emergency medicine. I have been involved in research related to inter-professional education and have presented on the national and international level on topics related to inter-professional curricular design and the clinical perspective of inter-professional practice. I continue to provide clinical care as a physician assistant one day per week with the Department of Anesthesiology at Duke University Medical Center. Prior to joining the faculty at Duke, I practiced clinically in family medicine and continue to have clinical interests in primary care, sports medicine and orthopedics. I am also a BOC certified athletic trainer and previously practiced as an athletic trainer at North Carolina State University.
