About Me

I am a family medicine doctor and enjoy providing primary care to a diverse panel of patients. My mission is to get to know my patients, their values, and treat them with the dignity and respect they deserve. My scholarly work is in health disparities, racism in medicine, population health, and structural competency. I bring that expertise into my clinical practice by providing patient-centered, compassionate, and equitable care in which I partner with my patients, while educating and empowering them to be active in their health. I provide primary care, which includes annual physical exams, women's health exams, managing chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes and hypertension, and treating acute problems, such as back pain and urinary tract infections. I believe it truly takes a village and value team-based care. Outside of medicine, I enjoy art, music, cooking, and spending time with family and friends on my flower and culinary herb farm.

Clinical Focus and Research

My Research Interests

My research interests include health disparities, racism in medicine, population health, and structural competency. I developed an anti-oppression curriculum on addressing physician bias through the active process of allyship. I am part of a team in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health building an online curriculum on addressing Black maternal and Black birthing people's health disparities. I am teaching a course at Duke School of Medicine on Cultural determinants of health and health disparities and serve as a consultant with MAHEC conducting workshops on Equity considerations in the treatment of opioid use disorder.
