I am originally from the Houston area, and I moved to Fort Worth in 2003 to attend Texas Christian University. I graduated from TCU with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2007. During my college years I fell in love with Fort Worth, and after graduating, I decided to make Fort Worth my permanent home. As a nurse, I worked in Labor and Delivery at John Peter Smith Hospital for 4 years and had the pleasure of working with the Acclaim Nurse-Midwives. I then felt the calling to pursue a career in midwifery.
I attended Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing and graduated in 2011 from the Nurse-Midwifery/Doctor of Nursing Practice program. After receiving my certification, I accepted midwife a position Parkland Hospital in Dallas. Working at Parkland gave me valuable experience with both normal uncomplicated birth as well as management of high-risk pregnancy. I am extremely blessed to now have the opportunity to work with this amazing group of midwives who are supported by physicians who respect and believe in the midwifery philosophy!
