WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I first became interested in pursuing a career in medicine after being a camp counselor for children with autoimmune type I diabetes when I was in college. I wanted to learn more about and care for patients who had autoimmune diseases and immune dysregulation, which is what led to my dual training in both rheumatology and allergy immunology. My clinical practice, where I teach medical students, residents and rheumatology and allergy/immunology fellows, reflects this comprehensive immunologic approach. Diseases in which I have particular expertise include rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren's syndrome, autoimmune inflammatory eye disease and common variable immune deficiency (CVID). I have several family members who also have autoimmune diseases and I have learned that care can be long term and involve a team approach. As a result, patient-centered care has become a personal goal.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I have unique clinical training in rheumatology, allergy, and immunology combined with a translational/basic science background in immunology, immune deficiency, and autoimmunity. My research experience at the NIH and Duke has concentrated on abnormal immune cell movement and function in disease.  My current research concentrates on immune cell signaling and gene defects, and the effects of these in the aging immune system, immune cell development, and in diseases of rheumatoid arthritis and immune deficiency.
