I am a certified nurse-midwife with professional interests in women's health, contraceptive care, prenatal, physiologic birth, and postpartum care, breastfeeding support, trial of labor after Cesarean (TOLAC), vaginal birth after Cesarean (VBAC) and water birth.
Hometown: Sioux Falls, South Dakota
I am passionate about: supporting women and their health care choices; being present with women, listening and empowering them through education. I love being invited to the birth of a family and enjoy catching babies.
If I was not a midwife: I would be a Barista at Starbucks. I love a good cup of coffee.
My favorite destination is: Telluride, Colorado. There is nothing more peaceful and freeing than snowboarding down the mountainside.
I knew I wanted to be a health care provider when: my younger brother was diagnosed with diabetes. I witnessed the challenges our family faced learning about the diagnosis and how it affected everyone. I wanted to help him learn about his body and not let the diagnosis limit him. At 13 years old, I was giving my seven-year-old brother multiple shots a day. I witnessed my first birth in nursing school and was empowered by birth, being present and witnessing the power of our bodies and the strength of the family.
Something I have learned from my patients is: that everyone is an individual. The women I care for have helped me gain insight into each woman's inner strength.
