I have worked with individuals with diverse needs and life experiences for 20 years. My experience has taught me that every person is unique, and they are the experts in their own lives. This allows for a person-centered experience and an increased opportunity to inspire change.

Body: 

Originally from South Florida, I received both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in social work from The Florida State University. I moved to NC in 2004 with my husband and son, and I immediately fell in love with the fall and winter seasons (we don’t have them in Florida!). I have worked in the healthcare field since 2001, and I joined the Duke Health system in 2012. My passion has always been healthcare, specifically working closely with patients and families to assist in meeting their needs and reaching their goals. In my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking, running, and traveling with my family.

I am a Native North Carolinian—go heels! Much of my work has been with individuals and families in direct mental health practice. I have worked with youth in residential care and pregnant and parenting teens, and most recently before coming to Duke, I managed a Behavioral Health Clinic specifically for Medicaid and Uninsured/Underinsured individuals. I received my Bachelors in Social Work from North Carolina State University and my Masters in Social Work from the UNC Chapel Hill. Working with DukeWell will allow me to continue my focus and practice to ensure individuals and families are able to get quality care and treatment without delay.
