Even though I was born and raised in Fort Worth it took me a few years since college to work my way back here. I attended The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC where I received a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. Aftergraduation I moved back to Texas to work as a Labor and Delivery nurse at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. At Parkland, I had the opportunity to work with many talented Nurse-Midwives who influenced me in my decision to attend Midwifery school.
After graduation from the Parkland School of Nurse-Midwifery in 2003 I performed a fellowship at Holy Family Services Birth Center in Weslaco, Texas. I continued my out-of-hospital work at Nativiti Birth Center in The Woodlands before moving to Dallas. From 2006 through 2009 I worked in a private practice at Baylor University Medical Center of Dallas. And now, I am thrilled to be back in Fort Worth and working for the Acclaim Nurse Midwives!
