About Me

I enjoy the long-term relationships I build with patients as a rheumatologist. My primary areas of clinical expertise in rheumatology are systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE, lupus) and inflammatory myopathies, especially dermatomyositis and the antisynthetase syndrome. I co-founded the Duke Lupus Clinic in 2007. I am also a passionate educator and mentor. I have led the Duke Rheumatology Fellowship Program to train rheumatology doctors since 2008. I chair the Department of Medicine Faculty Development Academy to mentor education scholars, and I serve as the Vice Chair for Education for the Duke Department of Medicine. In this role, I oversee educational programs throughout the Department of Medicine. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children, exercising, and gardening.

Clinical Focus and Research

My Research Interests

I have two research areas. The first is education. I develop and study ways to educate physicians and other providers about rheumatology, and I participate in national efforts to improve rheumatology education. My second research area is lupus. Collaborating with the Duke Lupus Clinic Research Team, I study lupus treatments, ways to improve patients' ability to use medications to improve their symptoms, and ways to improve quality of life for people with lupus. I enjoy projects where I can develop educational programs to teach both providers and patients about how to manage the condition.
