Tina started her nursing career as a new graduate in 1991 at Labor and Delivery at Duke Hospital where she worked for 6 years before moving to the outpatient world as a nurse manager. Three years into this position she was promoted to Health Center Administrator for the Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility Division where she met Dr. David Walmer and Dr. Susannah Copland. During this time, she worked with Dr. Walmer to build the Duke Fertility Center, an offsite facility.
Tina’s colleagues describe her as calm, strong, trusting and professional. She is known for her ability to build a well functioning team – placing people in the right place for their skills and talents to get the job done.
Tina is an area native, having grown up in Northern Orange County where she still lives today in a home she built with her husband right across from the one she grew up in with her parents. Family is very important to Tina. “Everything I do outside of work revolves around my family.” Her two daughters are in high school and both are very active in sports. Tina and her family love the water, and during the summer months when not working, you will find her at the lake.
