Dr. Sadler is a Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) and has spent many years serving the mental health population in a variety of inpatient settings treating psychotic disorders, addiction, mood disorders, ADHD, and severe anxiety. She began her nearly 20-year-long nursing career caring for patients in the areas of the burn critical care, emergency room, med-surg, cardiac, and behavioral health units.
She attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she received her Masters degree in the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program. She later returned to her alma mater at UNC where she earned her Doctor of Nursing Practice degree in an effort to better understand and serve her client population.
During her service in both the outpatient and acute care settings, she began to see many clients who suffered with executive function issues and symptoms of ADHD which had been undiagnosed and untreated. This can greatly affect a client's quality of life in many areas, including work, school, and relationships both in and out of the home. She began to research better ways to identify symptoms much earlier and manage treatment more effectively. She witnessed many who were properly diagnosed and treated go on to enjoy a higher quality of life in all areas.
She continues to work as a provider of Psychiatry at Duke University Hospitals in Durham in the Emergency Room setting.
