My journey to midwifery came about through a long and winding path. In 1998 I completed my training as a massage therapist and opened a private practice in Westport Connecticut. After a few years, I developed a strong desire to work more holistically with patients. I closed my practice and moved to New Mexico to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Botanical Medicine. It was during this time that I was introduced to midwifery and I finally knew what I wanted to be when I grew up!
I completed my BSN at PACE University in 2007. In my nursing career I have worked as a pediatric bone-marrow transplant nurse, a post-partum nurse, a newborn transition nurse and as a labor & delivery nurse. During that time, I completed my certificate as a Certified Lactation Counselor and made the push to start graduate school. In 2015, I graduated from the Frontier Nursing University with my MSN in Midwifery and was soon thereafter hired at The Women’s Clinic of Northern Colorado where I am thrilled to finally practice as a Certified Nurse Midwife.
I believe in the transformative power of birth. I love teaching women about their bodies and I feel privileged to care for women and their families in the capacity that only a healthcare provider can.
When not catching babies, I can be found hiking, camping, rock-climbing, listening to country and bluegrass and plotting my next visit to a hot spring.
