I am from the Windy City—Chicago, IL. I completed my BSN at Metropolitan State University in Minnesota where I resided for 21 years. I have been a resident of NC for 8 years. I have been a nurse for 25 years. I am currently in school to receive my Doctorate in Nursing as a Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I love serving as a nurse!
I have more than 6 years of nursing experience in various health care settings. I love working with patients to provide excellent patient-centered, holistic care while helping them reach their goals. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and listening to music.
I lived in Nashville, TN until 2016 when we moved to Apex, NC. I have been a Case Manager at Duke since 2016. The majority of my nursing and case management career has centered around Pediatrics, primarily Pediatric Cardiology. As an inpatient Case Manager, I loved working with families and children to assist in a smooth hospital discharge and identifying resources in the community. I am excited to work with DukeWELL and continue to provide support to patients/families in the community.
I grew up in Michigan and have lived my last 14 years in North Carolina. I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker and received my Masters in Social Work from Michigan State University. I have over 20 years of experience working within the behavioral health system, including a variety of roles such as case management, therapist, and agency leadership. My passion lies in ensuring that individuals are provided with the highest quality, evidenced-based services that are available with a particular focus on equity and person-centered treatment.
Originally from Miami, Florida, I chose to officially call North Carolina home in 2013. I received my Bachelors Degrees in Sociology and Psychology from UNC Chapel Hill (Go Heels!) and Masters from Columbia University School of Social Work. Throughout my career, I have worked with several diverse populations, including Child Protective Services, Intensive In-home Therapy, and Hospital Case Management with both adults and pediatric patients. I have been a part of the Duke University Health System for 3 years, and I look forward to continuing my journey while being an integral part in helping patients and their families navigate the health care system to be able to reach their identified health goals.
I am a licensed clinical social worker with over a decade of experience in healthcare. I specialize in psychosocial assessments and emotional support for patients and their families.

I am originally from Charlotte, NC. I graduated with my BSN from Winston Salem State University, and I received my MSN from UNC Charlotte. Over the years, I’ve worked in the OR, public health, behavior health, and case management. I was drawn to nursing because of my desire to care, support, and help patients!
I was born and raised in North Carolina and went to college at UNCW. After college, I was ready for a big change, so I moved to Austin, Texas where I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a Master’s degree in Social Work in 2006. Immediately out of graduate school and for the next 10 years, I worked with patients on hemodialysis in outpatient dialysis clinics. During this time, I also worked part time as a Mental Health Therapist while I obtained Social Work licensure. I transitioned to the inpatient setting in 2017 when I started Duke Health. I enjoy working closely with patients to help them progress towards their health-related and personal goals to lead healthier and happier lives. In my free time, I love spending time with my family and friends, traveling, and reading.
I was born and raised in Wilson, North Carolina. Things I enjoy doing include volunteering, arts and crafts, event planning, and reading.

I love the work that I do and enjoy working with and for DukeWELL! I decided to make Durham my new home. The area has a lot to offer and has been a part of my growth. I met my husband here and recently started a family. Currently, I am most excited about being a boy mom!
