About Me

As a rheumatologist, I care for patients with a variety of rheumatologic conditions, but am particularly interested in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and inflammatory myositis. I was drawn to the field of rheumatology because of the complex, multi-system nature of autoimmune diseases and the many exciting advances in immune therapies. Rheumatology is a field where the most important part of my visit is careful listening and examination of my patients to decipher which symptoms are important diagnostic clues. Most of all, I love rheumatology because it is a specialty which allows for long-lasting patient relationships. As Director of the Duke Lupus Clinic, I work alongside an exceptional group of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, students, research assistants and staff. Together, our goal is to provide compassionate, comprehensive and state-of-the-art care for our patients who suffer from lupus and lupus related conditions. In addition, I participate in research with the goal of improving the understanding and treatment of lupus. In whatever time is left, I enjoy hiking and biking in the great outdoors and spending time with my husband and two young children.

Clinical Focus and Research

My Research Interests

I am involved in lupus clinical and translational research. My clinical research includes lupus registries which gather information regarding patient symptoms, outcomes, and laboratory data.  I am an investigator for lupus specific clinical trials. The goal of our clinical trials program is to improve lupus treatment by expanding therapeutic options and providing access to novel medications.  Finally, I maintain active collaborations with translational laboratory scientists focused on better understanding the molecular causes of lupus.
