Body: 

I obtained my pharmacy degree from the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, as well as a PGY-1 with a focus in Ambulatory Care, and I am a Board Certified Pharmacist in Ambulatory Care. Prior to coming to Duke, I worked as a Clinical Pharmacist at Advocate Medical Group in Chicago, Illinois, managing patients with diabetes, hypertension, heart failure, hyperlipidemia, and on anticoagulation. I also worked as an Assistant Professor at Chicago State University. I am interested in chronic disease states and drug development research. Being a chronic disease state pharmacist has allowed me to help and educate patients regarding preventative medicine.
