Dr. Luckett pursued her academic journey at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, where she obtained her Doctor of Nurse Practitioner degree. She graduated with high honors, earning an impressive 4.0 GPA. Her commitment to academic excellence earned her memberships in the prestigious honor societies, Phi Kappa Phi and Sigma Theta Tau.
Her professional journey has been marked by a diverse range of experiences that have shaped her into a versatile and skilled healthcare provider. Dr. Luckett’s career began as a charge nurse and team leader at local medical institutions, including Betsy Johnson Hospital in Dunn, Duke Raleigh Hospital in Raleigh, and UNC Rex Hospital in Raleigh. She also worked as a registered nurse with East Carolina Pain Specialists. Her commitment to patient well-being and her leadership abilities were soon recognized, leading to her appointment as the Clinical Supervisor at Benson Health.

Her desire to work with and care for sexual and gender minority patients reflects her commitment to providing inclusive and empathetic healthcare to all individuals.
Dr. Luckett’s journey in healthcare was inspired by personal experiences with family health challenges. Observing the profound impact nurses had on her uncle’s battle with kidney disease and her own encounter with cancer, she was driven to give back to patients and families in the same compassionate and dedicated manner.
