WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I became fascinated by the complexity of the human brain when I took a Brain and Behavior course as a freshman in college. Throughout the rest of my medical training, neurology remained my passion. My goals as a neurointensivist and neurophysiologist are to provide compassionate and individualized care to all my patients. As a wife, daughter, and mother of two children, I understand that illness affects not only patients, but also the entire family. Our highly-specialized team at Duke strives to provide hope to patients and families during this difficult time. My research ambitions are to advance the field of neuromonitoring and improve the outcome of patients admitted to the neurocritical care unit.
