I am a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner who works in the Adult Hematology/Oncology Infusion Center. Before becoming a nurse practitioner I worked for 14 years as a staff nurse in Surgical Oncology. I graduated from Winston-Salem State University with both my undergraduate and post graduate degrees. I provide care to patients during their times in the Infusion Clinic. I truly enjoy working in Oncology; the patients inspire me every day, and I am grateful for each member in my team. I am a member of the Oncology Nursing Society, the American Nurses Association, and the North Carolina Nurses Association. My interests include community service and spending time with my family.
