Why did you get in profession?
One of my first jobs was working in an emergency housing center for battered women. This experience focused my interests in women’s healthcare, counseling and teaching, which led me to a career in midwifery and public health. Since 1984, I have worked as a midwife in New York City, Milwaukee and Denver. As a public health specialist, I have worked in Nigeria and Egypt and directed a training program in New York for midwives from many African countries. I feel honored and fulfilled by helping women achieve their health care goals.
Reading, hiking, biking and traveling.
