WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a physician assistant at the outpatient cardiology clinic and have been in this position more than 15 years. I’m from Pennsylvania originally and initially had a job doing HIV research here at Duke. I discovered I enjoyed spending time in clinic more than research, so that led me to pursue the physicians assistant program. I enjoy helping patients and figuring out what they need—not only medically, but also socially. This includes supporting patients who need help paying for their medication or understanding their treatments and treatment options. Working through these issues can be very rewarding when patients come back and are clearly doing better. When patients thank me for helping them achieve or move closer to their health goals, I feel very happy. I have three young girls, so I spend a lot of time with them and outdoors.
