About Me

I am a genetic counselor who specializes in cancer genetics. I have always had an interest in genetics, and my experience with crisis work made me realize I wanted to work with patients. I want to help you understand if there is a genetic cause for your cancer and how you can take back power in your health care decisions whether you have a genetic cause to your cancer or not. Genetics also plays a role in risks to family members, and I strive to help you explain your results to your family and help them understand their risks too. I see patients in person at Duke locations in Durham and Raleigh. I am available for telehealth appointments at two of Duke’s affiliate cancer network locations - Maria Parham Cancer Center and Scotland Cancer Treatment Center. I'm originally from Chicago (GO CUBS!) and moved to Durham from Seattle where I worked as a prenatal genetic counselor. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with friends exploring Raleigh/Durham, visiting my family on the coast, and traveling with friends who live all over the country.
