I was born and raised in Durham, NC, and I am a mother of three boys. I enjoy meeting and working with people from all over. Experiencing the loss of both of my parents within the past year inspired me to become an advocate and voice for patients within the health care system.

I started with Duke in March of 2019 as a Financial Care Counselor at Duke Eye Center. During that time, it was my responsibility to work with patients to resolve any financial barriers related to their healthcare. I am excited to be a part of the Duke PHMO team as a Care Coordinator. I have always had a passion to help people and my community. It’s exciting to be a part of a team that shares that same passion. In my spare time, I enjoy baking, binge watching shows, and spending time with my family.
