About Me


I have been practicing pediatrics for over 20 years. I completed medical school and a pediatric residency at the University of Minnesota and spent the first 13 years of my clinical practice in the Minneapolis area. I then taught clinical pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh before moving to North Carolina. I enjoy working with children of all ages. I have been trained in the Positive Parenting Program. My husband is a pediatric rheumatologist at Duke University Medical Center and we have two boys who keep us busy with all their activities.
