I am originally from Fort Worth, but spent most of my formative years in Germany. I returned to Texas for my undergrad and attended Baylor University - back before Waco was cool and “fixer upper-ed.” It was during this time that I learned about midwifery and my life-long desire to work in women’s health solidified into a career calling. I completed my nursing and midwifery education at Vanderbilt University, after which I moved to Maryland for my first midwifery position. This initial job was both extremely challenging and incredibly rewarding. The large volume and complex patients have given me a strong foundation on which to built. After five years, I felt it was time to move closer to family and was thrilled to join this amazing practice in Feb. 2018.
Outside of work, I enjoy audiobooks, podcasts, gardening, traveling, and I am passionate about serving women around the world. I have served as a midwife in Nicaragua and Lebanon on short-term trips with long-term established programs.
