She has a research appointment to the Wake Forest School of Medicine’s Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM), through the Wake Forest Center for Integrative Medicine (WFCIM). Her dissertation involved investigating the therapeutic effects of low-frequency pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) on inflammation/immune function and pain biomarkers.

She currently works as a biophysicist at the Wake Forest School of Medicine, studying the effects of low-frequency PEMF on cell communication and signal transduction. Specifically, she investigates the therapeutic effects of PEMF on adult stem cells to provide innovative therapies for the treatment of neuroinflammation and nerve regeneration in tissue injury and disease. She has presented her research findings at international conferences on biophysics and energy medicine.

She has published articles in internationally known medical journals: Journal of Inflammation Research, Stem Cell Research, Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, Wound Repair and Regeneration, Journal of Science and Applications in Biomedicine, Organogenesis, Biomaterials, World Journal of Gastroenterology, Expert Opinion on Biological Therapies, Digestive and Liver Disease, Integrative Medical Insights, Biotechnology Progress, Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, and JSM Biotechnology & Biomedical Engineering. 

She authored a book chapter titled, “Energy Medicine” for the book Alternative Medicine, and wrote a book on Energy Medicine titled, Etiology: How to Detect Disease in your Energy Field Before It Manifests in your Body. For her book she received the award for “Outstanding achievement for advanced theory and practice in Energy Medicine” from Energy Medicine Partnerships at the Joint Congress in 2014.

In 2017 she received the “Women of Distinction Award for Outstanding Achievement in Science and Business” from Marquis Who’s Who in America, becoming the North Carolina national representative.
