I completed my doctoral degree in 2018 at Duke University School of Nursing; my dissertation focused on the healthcare experiences of women survivors of interpersonal violence. This research was funded by the American Nurses Foundation. Before my doctoral education, I served as a public health nurse for the Chatham County Public Health Department in Pittsboro, NC, where I worked with pregnant women and young children. I graduated in 2011 with a BSN with highest honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) School of Nursing. My current research interests focus on improving health care experiences for survivors of traumatic life events and understanding the intersecting social determinants of health that survivors experience.
