I am a rheumatologist who sees women who are pregnant or wish to be pregnant and have a rheumatic disease. I developed a passion very early in my training for helping women with rheumatic disease build the families that they want. I continue to be inspired each day by my patients and to look for better ways to improve the health of both mother and baby. I also see patients in the Duke Lupus Clinic where we address the challenges of living with lupus. The clinicians work as a team sharing the care of the patients. We often have trainees working with us to teach future doctors who to manage lupus. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children and running a Girl Scout troop.
