I have been a registered dietitian for over 30 years. After graduate school, I did an internship at Duke and then worked as the Relief Dietitian for a year before taking a job with a group of endocrinologists in a weight loss program for three years. I returned to Duke and worked in the General Clinical Research Center (Rankin Ward, Duke South, Blue Zone) and then transitioned to the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Medical Genetics, when the Genetic/Metabolic Clinic began. I was at Duke for 22 years before taking a job with a pharmaceutical company, where I have worked for the past 7 years. I am compassionate about all aspects of patient care, and I am so happy to be back at Duke once again!
I am a North Carolina native. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Public Health Nutrition from UNC Chapel Hill and my Master of Science in Nutrition from UNC Greensboro. I previously developed nutrition education programs for community settings. With my husband, I enjoy traveling, outdoor activities, cooking, spending time with friends and family, and being active in our church.
"I am from the Washington, D.C. suburbs, but have lived in North Carolina since 2013 and now consider it home. I grew up in a big Greek family where we loved eating and talking about food. I earned my Master’s in Public Health focusing on nutrition from UNC. Today, I am passionate about helping people get access to healthy, tasty and culturally-appropriate foods... and empowering them to improve their health through good nutrition! I also love cooking, going on outdoor adventures and binge-listening to true crime podcasts."
