About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

I chose midwifery and women's health as a profession due to my passion for families, birth and autonomy for women in their health care. As a midwife, I am able to partner in a woman's care throughout her lifespan.

What I want my patients to know about me:

1) I am a listener: During a patient encounter, what they have to say is important to me. 2) I am partner in healthcare: I work together with patients in developing their own individualized plan of care and healthcare management. 3) I focus on the natural processes of pregnancy, labor and birth with respect for each patient's individualized beliefs

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

When I am not engaging in a patient's direct care, I am spending time with my own family. What I enjoy the most is time spent with my granddaughter. I enjoy the outdoors, walking in nature, and long walks on the beach in search of seashells.
