Body: 

I’ve been in healthcare for a little over ten years. It’s a passion of mine to help others. I started as a housekeeper, and at that moment in my life, I learned what I feel to be the most important trait to have working in healthcare: empathy! I’ve progressed over the last ten years, but no matter my role, helping and serving other has always been at the forefront for me. I’m excited to have the opportunity to fulfill that passion here at Duke! Something I heard years ago will forever stick with me: "Treat the janitor with the same respect as the CEO." Duly noted!

I was born and raised until age 10 in Liberia, so I experienced diversity at a young age. I have been a nurse for 30 years, working in hospitals and clinics, in management and education, in direct patient care and via telephone. As someone with both social work and nursing degrees, I truly enjoy helping people be the best that they can be.
