Edra Burke is the wife of Preston Burke.

History[edit | edit source]

Marriage with Burke[edit | edit source]

Little is known about Edra's life before she met Burke, except that she studied medicine and became a surgeon.

She met Burke when he moved to Europe after the Harper Avery buzz and met Edra. They fell in love and married, welcoming two daughters into their lives. Edra gave up her job in order to care for their children so that Burke could continue leading the Klausman Institute for Medical Research.

However, in 2014, Edra wanted to move closer to her parents who lived in Milan. Burke, realizing that it was his turn after Edra had given up so much for him, gave up his job and passed the hospital down to Cristina Yang. Although no canon information has been given about Burke and Edra afterward, it can be assumed that Edra and her family moved to Milan shortly after Burke transferred the practice to Cristina.
