I enjoy providing a midwifery model of care to women that maximizes health through deep listening, shared decision-making, supportive care, and judicious use of interventions if
complications arise. I strive to provide top-notch clinical care to each client I see while also working to improve health care policies and systems for women and their families.
I currently serve on the American College of Nurse Midwives task force for promoting normal physiologic birth. In my spare time I enjoy art, scratch cooking, and being outside with my family.
