I first discovered my passion for birth and women’s health when I became a doula (birth assistant) many years ago. I continued to develop that love as a labor and delivery nurse but wanted the opportunity to work more closely with women and their families in order to give them quality women’s health care at all stages in their lives. As a Certified Nurse Midwife, I am able to provide women with the education and tools to make individualized, informed decisions for themselves.
I attended the Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing in Kentucky and graduated with a Masters of Nursing Degree and a Certificate of Midwifery. I am Board Certified through the American Midwifery Certification Board (ACMB). I joined Lincoln OB-GYN in 2009. I am also a certified Lactation Counselor available for breastfeeding education and assistance.
I provide care in both obstetrics and gynecology; including preconception counseling, pregnancy, PAP smears, STD screening, and family planning. As a mother of two young daughters, I understand the importance of providing excellent health care to women during all stages of life from early teens through menopause and beyond.
