Summer Okimoto, DNP, CNM is a Texas Native who graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Summer worked as a labor and delivery nurse for nine years. During that time, she volunteered at a pregnancy resource center and served overseas as a medical missionary. The experiences she had in providing care for women and their families, nationally and internationally, ignited a desire in her heart to strengthen her global commitment to women’s health by becoming a certified nurse-midwife (CNM).
In 2010, Summer Okimoto, graduated from the Nurse-Midwifery/Doctor of Nursing Practice program at Baylor University. Summer’s midwifery career began with the UNT Health Nurse-Midwives and she had the pleasure of working with them for two and a half years before moving to Denver, Colorado. From 2013-2015, she continued to practice full-scope midwifery with the University Nurse Midwives at University of Colorado Hospital. During that time, her knowledge was enhanced and her love for this profession grew significantly while caring for a large underserved population of women from all over the world.
Summer is passionate about seeing women empowered to make educated decisions and she enjoys providing evidence-based, compassionate and culturally sensitive care to women and their families.
In her spare time, she loves spending time with her family, church community, traveling, cooking, photography and participating in barre fitness.
