I am from Brooklyn, New York. I relocated to work for Duke-TIP in January 2020. Due to COVID and the restructuring of Duke TIP, my career path led me to Duke Health. I have a Master’s Degree in Health Administration and a long history of supporting providers and patients. I love being able to assist providers in their care for patients and helping patients care for their loved ones and themselves.
I was born and raised in the Great Lake state and am very new to the Triangle area! I received my Bachelors of Science in Interdisciplinary Health Service at Western Michigan University, located in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I have worked in various health care settings during and after college. Specific areas include behavioral health, veteran care, and geriatric care. Ever since I was kid, I knew that I had wanted to help others in any way I could, so I am so excited to be working in a department that will allow me to continue following my passion.
I am a Greensboro native and a graduate of UNC Greensboro, where I received my BS in Nutrition and Health Coach certification. I have recently completed a Master’s Degree in Public Health Nutrition at Appalachian State University. Prior to joining DukeWELL, I spent six years with NC State University, providing nutrition education programs and leading health initiatives to youth and adults across the Triad. I enjoy building relationships with patients and helping them break down complex needs into small, tangible steps towards their healthcare goals! In my free time, I enjoy cooking, hiking, playing competitive kickball, and paddle boarding on the lake.
I was raised in Rocky Mount, NC and attended UNC Greensboro, where I received my bachelors degree in social work. I obtained my Masters of Science in Social Administration (accredited MSW) from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. I have worked in a healthcare setting for over 10 years and started with Duke Health System in January of 2014. I enjoy building relationships with patients and hope to continue making a positive impact with their healthcare needs.

"I have worked in direct patient care and specifically with low-income individuals, pregnant women, families and immigrants. Prior to my position at Duke, I worked in HIV/AIDS research at University of San Francisco California and at community clinics overseeing a CDC funded HIV testing project in clubs in Oakland, CA. In a past life I worked in global health across Africa and Latin America. I hold a Masters of Public Health from the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health. Through these diverse experiences, I have developed a passion for identifying creative and engaging tools to facilitate and promote patient centered engagement in the public health sphere. Outside of work I enjoy gardening, birth doula work, and planning detailed travel itineraries then going on those vacations."
