I have been a clinical nurse for a little over four years now. Prior to joining Duke, my primary unit was in the cardiac ICU. I recently graduated with my Master’s Degree in Nursing and am very excited to educate and advocate for others. Two of my favorite aspects of the work I do include helping others through showing them compassion and sharing my passion for caring for others with colleagues.

Body: 

I am originally from Canada but have resided in North Carolina most of my adult life. I have a Bachelors Degree in Nursing, and throughout my career, I have worked with a diverse population of patients. Most of my nursing journey has been caring for critically ill patients in a large local hospital. I have also worked with patients who suffer from chronic wounds. My last role was as an inpatient Case Manager, which helped position me for this role with DukeWELL. My passion is assisting patients and families in navigating the healthcare system by providing the knowledge and resources they need to improve their lives. I am excited to be part of this team and will strive to make a positive impact to those I serve.

Body: 

I am a North Carolina native—born and raised in Rocky Mount. I received my Bachelors of Science in Nursing from the illustrious North Carolina Central University (EAGLE PRIDE!!) in 2007. However, I have been in the healthcare field for over 22 years. I later received a Masters in Health Administration with a concentration in Leadership and Organizational Change from Pfeiffer University. I began my nursing career in the ICU at Durham Regional Hospital and gradually transitioned into the mental health/substance abuse sector where I have spent the bulk of my career. I have had the privilege of serving a diverse population—latency-age children, DJJ-involved adolescents, adults, and veterans—in various community based, residential, and inpatient care settings. I have held many administrative, management, and leadership roles; however, my passion lies in working closely with consumers to ensure that they have access to treatment and the appropriate resources which will aid them in maintaining their highest state of wellness.
