About Me

I’m a pediatric emergency medicine specialist committed to providing high-quality emergency care to ill and injured children. My clinical care focuses on providing innovative pain management and procedural sedation options, while ensuring that all children have equitable access to care. I am passionate about developing effective pain management options for chronic conditions that present acutely such as sickle cell disease pain crises. I strive to harness every opportunity to teach emergent pediatric management to all levels of learners. Outside of work, I enjoy exploring all the activities the area has to offer, from lake sports to hiking, and being the biggest fan at sporting events, ballroom dance competitions, and the concerts of my husband and three children.

Clinical Focus and Research

My Research Interests

My research career has focused on pain and sedation management, disparities in healthcare delivery, innovation and dissemination, and career development. I serve on the HRSA Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Innovation and Improvement Center executive leadership core and co-lead the Knowledge Management and Research domains. I spent 10 years as site principal investigator for the National Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN), including the largest clinical trials for sickle cell disease pain. My dissemination expertise is also harnessed in the Pediatric Pandemic Network (PPN) where I co-lead the communications domain and am excited to bring this work to Duke Health.
