About Me

I have two major roles within Wake Forest Baptist Health: I serve as the Program Director for the PA Program and I practice clinically in Family and Community Medicine. It is equally rewarding to care for patients of all ages and to teach medical learners who will serve as the next generation of healthcare providers. With the excellence in clinical care and superb teaching that Wake Forest Baptist emphasizes, I find that working here for over 36 years fulfills those shared goals.

Particular teaching interests include relationship-centered patient communication, primary care topics, outpatient procedures, cardiovascular medicine and adult-learning principles.

Clinically, I enjoy acute care of infants, children, young adults, and seniors. I am dedicated to preventive medicine and thoroughly enjoy educating patients and their caregivers about wellness and health maintenance.
