About Me

I am fortunate to work with an exceptional team at Duke and love coming to work every day! I treat children with urologic concerns and children and adults with spina bifida. Every day I get to establish meaningful, working relationships with my patients and their loved ones. Helping children while doing stimulating, challenging work is the greatest joy of my life. I often refer to my practice as a team sport because of the importance of having patients and their caregivers on board with treatment plans. I strive to deliver collaborative, personable, innovative, and high-quality, evidence-based care to each and every patient. I grew up in New Jersey and, although I miss the bagels and not having to pump my own gas, I am very happy to live in North Carolina. In our spare time, my fiancé and I love to travel the world and stay active.

Clinical Focus and Research
My Research Interests

The goal of my continuing education and research is to ensure that I am delivering the highest quality of evidence-based care to all of my patients. I am very interested in studying how to best manage dysfunctional voiding, bladder and bowel continence, and congenital urological defects in the pediatric population in addition to growing trends in health informatics.
