A native of Illinois I graduated from Harvard College with a degree in History of Science where I wrote a thesis on the medicinal legacy of chocolate. After bouncing between Boston and Nashville the past decade for training I moved to Durham to join my husband Mike a resident at Duke in the Internal Medicine Department. We are enjoying exploring the Triangle with our two-year old son Teddy and are amazed at the wonderful research environment at Duke. As a clinician also dedicated to translating research back to the bedside I am actively working on projects focused on melanoma risk factors experienced by those in the military and how the bacterial micro-environment affects wound healing and scarring.
