Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a mother of three who enjoys taking care of patients with a full range of endocrine disorders. I am board-certified in Pediatric Endocrinology and have been a resident of Wake County since 1997. I have clinical and research interests in diabetes mellitus and related treatment technologies, including sensor-augmented pumps. I also enjoy caring for children with bone diseases including osteoporosis, rickets, avascular necrosis, skeletal dysplasias, and calcium/phosphorus disorders. In addition, I manage complex patients with hypothalamic/pituitary disorders and including late effects of cancer treatments. Sexual development, pubertal disorders, and gender disorders are a special interest of mine. Thyroid disorders (including cancer), adrenal disorders (including congenital adrenal hyperplasia) and tumors are also part of my clinical repertoire. I enjoy running, biking, gardening, and traveling with my family.
