After graduating from Watts School of Nursing here in Durham, I started my nursing career at Duke University Hospital (DUH) on 8300: Adult Medicine in March of 2012. In November of 2013, I joined the DUH emergency department, where I was able to hone my critical thinking skills while caring for a diverse and complex patient population. I love problem solving, being a part of a team, and helping others.
I graduated from Watts School of Nursing in 2011 and have been part of the Duke family ever since! I graduated in 2016 with my BSN from the University of Mount Olive. I have worked in both inpatient and ambulatory settings throughout my career, specifically in general medicine and infusion nursing. In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, cooking, decorating, and spending time with my fur babies. I am passionate about quality, patient-centered care and what DukeWELL has to offer patients and their families.
Nursing is actually my second career. I was a commercial underwriter for a title company in Chapel Hill for about 11 years before changing careers to nursing. My nursing career started at Duke Regional Hospital on general surgery. I later transferred to postpartum where I thoroughly enjoyed working with new moms. I briefly worked as a home health nurse. I was in my last position for eleven years at NC Specialty Hospital in their preop department where I served as charge nurse and preceptor until accepting this new opportunity with PHMO.
I have been a registered nurse for approximately four years with the majority of my nursing career in the emergency department. Being able to connect with our patients and families on such an intimate level and being able to positively directly impact the lives of others makes this a truly rewarding career.
I graduated from East Carolina University with my BSN in 2019. I have worked in multiple emergency departments throughout North Carolina during my nursing career. I am passionate about health education and promotion, and I am excited to be part of the Duke family.
I was born and raised until age ten in Liberia, so I experienced diversity at a young age. I have been a nurse for thirty years, working in hospitals and clinics, in management and education, and 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.
My nursing experience includes case management (inpatient and remote), chronic care management, dialysis (chronic, acutes, home therapies). I obtained my BSN from Jacksonville University.
I received my BSN at University of North Florida in Jacksonville, FL. After working as a med surg and cardiac nurse for several years, I found my calling in public health nursing. Serving the community on a more personal level is definitely my niche.
I have over 15 years of nursing experience in various healthcare settings. I love working with patients, and their families, providing holistic care. I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling.
