Research and Clinical Interests

My research and clinical interests include the intersection of women’s health and nephrology in areas such as fertility, contraception, pregnancy, postpartum care, and menopause.  With a Master of Science in Clinical Research from the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, I am gaining the necessary tools to advance the field and pursue meaningful clinical research in this area.

Personal Statement

Nephrology is a field that remains mentally stimulating yet tremendously fulfilling and I continue to appreciate each day in this profession.  My career goal is to provide patient-centered care to individuals with chronic kidney disease through both clinical and research endeavors.  I have a passion for glomerular disease and women’s health within nephrology and am committed to improving the long-term outcomes of both kidney disease and its co-morbidities.  Outside of work, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband and three children.
