Tarheel born, Tarheel bred.  I was born in Eastern North Carolina but grew up in Knightdale.  Growing up, I always wanted to deliver babies, now being in the field of obstetrics and gynecology; I do just that and much more.  I enjoy getting to know my patients and taking care of them their whole life from adolescence, to needing contraception, to being pregnant, to needing a hysterectomy, or transitioning into menopause.  Beyond these things, my special interests include family planning, laparoscopic surgery, health care disparities, and resident education.  When I’m not working, I’m spending time with family and friends, most importantly my husband, two daughters, and dog.
