Duke Health Provider What's this?
Insurance

Duke Health contracts with most major health insurance carriers and transplant networks, including the ones listed below. Before scheduling your appointment, we strongly recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the Duke Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any co-payments, co–insurances, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.

WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a nurse practitioner who works with adults who have heart and blood vessel conditions. My PhD focused on finding early indicators of a specific type of heart failure. My favorite part of my job is connecting with patients and letting them know that we are here to listen and make them feel better. I like to know about patients’ home lives and other lifestyle factors, so we can build those factors into a medical plan that works for them.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My primary interest is in using echocardiograms to identify risk factors prior to the development of heart failure. My research goal is to identify biomarkers measured by echocardiogram that are therapeutic targets for intervention. I would like to design prospective trials that study the impact of stress on the development of heart failure along with interventions that prevent onset.
