About Me

I have been providing obstetrical and gynecologic care in the Triangle for more than 20 years. I practice all aspects of OB-GYN, including delivering babies, performing surgery and providing preventative and specialized care in the office. I specialize in two areas: I provide comprehensive pediatric and adolescent gynecological care to children from birth through age 21. I also specialize in treating people whose menopausal symptoms are affecting their quality of life. I am married and have twin boys who keep me on my toes. I have many personal ties to Duke Health and the care provided here. I did my residency at Duke Health, I was a patient at the Duke Cancer Center, and my boys are proud Blue Devil graduates of the Duke Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. I am originally from Massachusetts.
