Care Philosophy

I chose to focus my research and practice on heart rhythm problems because these problems unlike many other heart conditions can be cured. New treatment options for heart rhythm problems are rapidly evolving which also makes this field very exciting. I have been at Duke for nearly 20 years. Both of my parents were involved in health care so my choice of profession is part of a family tradition. I also went to a school where there was a strong tradition of community service so I am thrilled that I get to wake up every day and get a chance to make a difference. As a heart rhythm specialist I have the opportunity to make patients feel better right away without the use of many medications to help manage their condition which I find extremely gratifying. I moved to North Carolina many years ago because of its natural beauty and still enjoy spending time outdoors as much as I can. I am a trained classical pianist and also play the cello.
