I am a Texas Native who graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I worked as a labor and delivery nurse for nine years. During that time, I volunteered at a pregnancy resource center and served overseas as a medical missionary. The experiences I had in providing care for women and their families, nationally and internationally, ignited a desire in my heart to strengthen my global commitment to women’s health by becoming a certified nurse-midwife.

In 2010, I graduated from the Nurse-Midwifery/Doctor of Nursing Practice program at Baylor University. My midwifery career began with the Acclaim Nurse-Midwives and I had the pleasure of working with them for two and a half years before moving to Denver, Colorado. From 2013-2015, I continued to practice full-scope midwifery with the University Nurse Midwives at University of Colorado Hospital. During that time, my knowledge was enhanced and my love for this profession grew significantly while caring for a large underserved population of women from all over the world.

I am passionate about seeing women empowered to make educated decisions and I enjoy providing evidence-based, compassionate and culturally sensitive care to women and their families. I am excited to be joining this amazing group of midwives, again!
