My care philosophy is based on the commitment of empowering women to be advocates in their health. I believe that my role as a provider is to provide guidance through education, support, and my expertise as a midwife. I want my patients to know that I am a committed member of their team and will embrace them as a partner in their care.
I have 12 years of nursing experience in labor and delivery. I enjoy caring for women during childbirth and desired to further develop caring relationships that support women throughout their lifetime as well. As a Certified Nurse Midwife, I am able to fulfill my passion for providing women’s health care.
I have worked for UCHealth the past five years, during which time, I obtained my Masters of Science degree in nursing to become a Certified Nurse Midwife. I have been very impressed with the commitment of UCHealth to improving the lives of individual patients and also their focus on the health of our community. As a new provider, I am committed to upholding this through excellent evidence-based care.
Beyond patient care, my family and I enjoy horseback riding and camping in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. I also enjoy cooking with my two children and playing our own version of the game “Chopped”.
