WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a nurse practitioner who has been with Duke for almost 25 years. From the time I was in middle school, I was interested in medicine. When I first graduated from nursing school, I worked as a critical care nurse in a cardiology unit. While I’ve done many other things in my career, cardiology has always been my first love. My favorite part of the day is when I get to sum up each patient’s visit. During this time, I like to chat with the patient and hear about their life experiences. I find learning these little “life secrets” from my patients inspiring. I am from Maryland, and most of my family still lives there. When I have free time, I love visiting them and eating crabs, and spending time with my grown kids and husband.
