As the chief of oculofacial surgery at Duke, I specialize in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the eyelids and orbit as well as the cosmetic laser surgery of the skin. I have published extensively on my work with cosmetic lasers, injectable fillers, neuromodulators, and benign essential blepharospasm in peer-reviewed journals and several textbooks. I speak frequently at both national and international meetings. I also serve on the editorial board of two aesthetic journals and was the first female oculofacial surgeon to be featured on the cover of the Plastic Surgery Practice Magazine. I am also a passionate artist and work with a variety of mediums. I believe that my work as a cosmetic surgeon is an extension of my great love of art.
