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.
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 graduated in 2012 with my BSN from North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC. I started my nursing career with Duke in 2012 as a new graduate RN. 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!
I am a native of Greenville, NC. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Winston-Salem State University and my Master’s degree in Social Work from East Carolina University. I am Provisionally licensed in NC in Social Work and fully licensed as an Addiction Counselor in NC and VA. I am currently a Clinical Supervisor Intern for Substance Use and a part-time Adjunct Professor for UNCG and GTCC. I love traveling and being a mother and an advocate for those suffering from the disease of addiction.
I have lived in North Carolina for most of my life. I graduated with my BSN from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (Aggie Pride!), and I received my MSN from Aspen University. I love having the ability to assist patients and families in obtaining the resources they need to make their lives easier.
I have worked for Duke for 25 years and enjoy helping patients and their loved ones become proactive in their healthcare needs.
My first nursing position was at Duke right after finishing Hampton Institute in 1981. I am delighted to return to Durham in 2021 and be back at Duke Health!
I’m originally from Baltimore, where I received my MSW from UMAB. We moved to North Carolina in 2005. I have been a member of the Duke Health team since 2006. I love working with the geriatric population. I’m passionate about helping patients and their families obtain needed resources and navigate through the challenging healthcare system.
Since becoming a nurse in 2011, I have developed a passion not only for helping people understand the medical jargon providers use, but also how to fit this information into their lives. I furthered these interests by obtaining a master’s in public health and a certificate in health communication from UNC in 2019. Along with supporting others, I enjoy hiking, kayaking, and generally enjoying the outdoors.
