Elisabeth "Betsy" Strain

I am native of Massachusetts and graduated from Boston College in Communication. I decided to “try” nursing and followed up at a community college to become an RN. Now 28 years later, I have received a BSN from UNC Wilmington and have worked as an RN in both Massachusetts and North Carolina. I have worked in forensics, behavioral health with both adults and adolescents/children, rehabilitation, and as a utilization manager for the last 12 years. I love working as an RN with opportunities to work with so many disciplines and care for such a diverse population.

Julia Mathes

I graduated from the University of Kentucky College of Nursing in 2020. I started my career as a NICU nurse and later transitioned to outpatient nursing, which had some components of care management. I loved the care management aspect of healthcare, because it provided the opportunity to care for patients holistically and on a deeper level. I am grateful to have found DukeWELL and look forward to serving a new population!

Keisha Payne

With 23 years of experience as a registered nurse, I've had the privilege of working in various fields, such as corrections, radiology, oncology, intensive care, utilization management, and behavioral health. Recently, I accomplished my master’s in social work, and I am eager to utilize my extensive experience and education to enhance the well-being of our patients and their families. Helping people is my passion, and I am excited to work with you!

Melissa Salter

I’ve been a RN for 26 years. The majority of my time was spent in NICU, PICU, and Neo/Peds transport. I was taught to not just care for my patients, but for the family as well. My other time was spent in obstetrics and pediatric neurology. I have a wide spectrum of experiences and am excited to bring those to help serve this community.

Joan Moira Oliver

I have been a Duke team member since 2010—initially as a case manager for general medicine teams, and then I assisted in embedding the case management model in the Duke Emergency Department. I enjoy being of service to our patients and connecting them to resources in our community.

Camilla Black

My background is in counseling, higher education, and behavioral health. I enjoy making sure resources are available to people who need them most to help improve their lives.

Gaye Baker

I have been a registered nurse for over 30 years and a case manager for over 20 years. I love the role of case manager as it allows me to use my knowledge and experience to truly help other people. Health care has become very fast paced and difficult to navigate or even understand. For some, access to available community resources and health care resources has become difficult to nearly impossible. I feel very blessed to be able to bridge this gap with the goal that everyone will be able to access what they need to live healthy and meaningful lives.

Aisha Brownlee-Antoine

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have been serving children and families for the past eight years as an intensive in-home therapist, as well as in schools. I love connecting with people and helping others access resources and find support. I am invested in learning your story and walking with you to move forward in life.
