I obtained my pharmacy degree from the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, as well as a PGY-1 with a focus in Ambulatory Care, and I am a Board Certified Pharmacist in Ambulatory Care. Prior to coming to Duke, I worked as a Clinical Pharmacist at Advocate Medical Group in Chicago, Illinois, managing patients with diabetes, hypertension, heart failure, hyperlipidemia, and on anticoagulation. I also worked as an Assistant Professor at Chicago State University. I am interested in chronic disease states and drug development research. Being a chronic disease state pharmacist has allowed me to help and educate patients regarding preventative medicine. It also has given me the opportunity to educate and mold young pharmacists regarding our profession's role.
