I was born in Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa. My family migrated to the States in 1980 due to civil war in Liberia. I grew up thereafter in Birmingham, Alabama. I graduated from Auburn University-M with a BSN in 1990. I have worked in various areas of nursing over 30 years, most recently as a travel nurse when I relocated from Allen, Texas back to Durham in 2017 to help care for my ailing mother. I returned to Duke in 2018 in case management, and I feel blessed to continue my journey with PHMO to assist with the health care needs of patients through education, advocacy, and helping them navigate the overwhelming healthcare system, especially the underserved.
