Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
Apparently I said I wanted to be a "baby doctor" since I was five. There was never any doubt that I would be involved in the care of women, especially during the birth process. I started working in an obstetrical unit as a new graduate nurse and have been a nurse midwife since 1992. I am proud to say that I was part of bringing midwifery care to the women in York County as the first CNM to get hospital privileges. I am currently a candidate for a Doctor of Nursing Practice with a focus on care of the postpartum women with an opiate use disorder.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I am committed to the care of women and families. I believe that women should be partners in their care.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I try to spend as much time as I can with my family. I have five children and five grandchildren, and our Sunday dinners are epic events. Hobbies for me are photography, reading, knitting and crocheting, not necessarily in that order.
