About Me

My goal is to provide meaningful midwifery care in my community. I have been positively impacted by the care and support I have received from nurse midwives throughout my life. I strive to provide the same level of care to the women I care for. I love to help women through health and life issues, support their decisions, provide care throughout labor, and cheer them on when they give birth to their babies. I collaborate with other caregivers in my area to enhance birthing environments in hospitals and birthing centers to be supportive of women and their health care choices. I recognize birth as a natural and normal process and not a medical procedure. I advocate for women by promoting an environment that supports the process of birth and decreases fear and anxiety for childbearing women and their families. I offer care in an environment that is warm, welcoming, and supportive of individual needs and desires. I love to be a health teacher, and I use the most current and relevant research available to provide information to patients.
