“I knew after nursing school that I wanted to pursue an advanced nursing career.  I’m a people person and being a nurse midwife allows me to develop a long-term relationship with patients and be part of what is one of the greatest moments in their lives.  I’ve seen this first hand because both of my daughters were delivered by a nurse midwife.  And I see it when I’m out in the community … I love when I see a patient at Kroger’s and she tells her child that “this is the midwife that delivered you.”  The nurse midwife field is growing … more than 10,000 in the U.S.  My practice focuses on healthy patients with normal pregnancies and routine gynecological care.”
