I began my educational path in psychology, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Northern Colorado in 2007, followed by an Associates of Applied Science in nursing from Front Range Community College in 2008. My journey to midwifery started in nursing school when I witnessed a birth for the first time. I was amazed at the strength and beauty of a woman in labor and knew I wanted to be a nurse midwife. I spent 8 years as a nurse working in women’s health, labor and delivery, and newborn care. In 2015, I graduated from Frontier Nursing University with a Master of Science in Nursing.
After graduating with my midwifery degree, I practiced in the Denver area in both hospital and birth center settings before joining the Women’s Clinic of Northern Colorado in 2017. I love to teach and have had the joy of precepting students and residents. I enjoy caring for women in all stages of their lives, from puberty to menopause. I feel especially honored to attend births and help families welcome new little ones into their lives.
When I’m not busy catching babies, I enjoy concerts, camping, and ballroom dance.
