WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I provide primary care to all ages, but with a focus in geriatrics. I enjoy caring for older patients and helping care for patients at the end of life. After growing up in Durham, I came back in 2005 to complete fellowships in geriatric medicine and palliative medicine at Duke. In addition to my primary care practice, I teach our family medicine residents in our clinic and in their long-term care experience. I feel lucky to live so close by in the downtown Durham area with my husband and three kids. We regularly take advantage of the ability to walk to many of Durham’s great restaurants, the farmers market, and activities on the Duke campus.
