I am originally from Fort Worth, Texas. I attended Texas Christian University graduating in 1984 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). In1987 I completed the Women’s Health Care Advanced Nurse Practitioner (NP) program at U.T. Southwestern. For the next 10 years, I worked for the Tarrant County Hospital District at John Peter Smith Hospital. I served as an OB/GYN NP as well as Director of Women’s Ambulatory Services.
In 1999, I completed the Parkland School of Nurse Midwifery in Dallas, Texas, as well as my Masters Degree. I practiced Nurse-Midwifery and served as associate faculty at UT Southwestern and at Parkland Hospital. In 2004, I joined North Texas Affiliated Medical Group and in2005 we became a faculty practice with the University of North Texas Health Science Center. The practice, now known as Acclaim Nurse-Midwives, has grown to be a leader in providing women’s health care.
I am proud and blessed to be part of this very special group of women. We are committed to serving the needs and desires of our patients at each season of life. As a mother of adult children, I understand the many different phases of life and bring my education and experiences to help treat as well as guide my patients to optimum health.
