About Me - My Core Value is:  Living an authentic life.

“I have resisted labeling and being labeled all my life, but if you insist upon labeling me, you may say that I am trans-gifted.”     - from this story -

I am a clinician in the Department of Hospital Medicine at Duke Regional Hospital, and an Adjunct Associate Professor for teaching Duke PA students.

The year 2016 marks 20 years at Duke, initially in Nephrology; and 25 continuous years as a physician assistant, all in NC.

Received my Masters’ in Clinical Leadership (MHS-CL) from Duke School of Medicine in 2007.
Completed physician assistant training from Wake Forest University School of Medicine in 1991.
Received BS degree from Roosevelt University, Chicago.

Authored "Hestia’s House" (a literary memoir) and numerous other published articles, essays and poems.  My memoir reveals the fact that over 3 decades ago, well before my medical career, I underwent gender reassignment.
