Originally from Ft Worth, I moved with my husband to Galveston Texas to attend nursing school at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB). Once I received my BS in Nursing, I began working as a labor and delivery nurse at the university hospital. In 2001, I completed the Graduate program in which I obtained my Master’s Degree in Nursing as well as my certificate to practice midwifery.
I moved back to the Dallas/Ft Worth area not only to be close to my family but also to accept a position as a staff midwife with Parkland Hospital. My 6 years at Parkland gave me invaluable experience as well as a diverse population base to serve. I attended over 1150 births before joining Acclaim Nurse Midwives in February 2008.
