Originally from the Midwest, I was drawn to New Mexico for the rich culture & history of midwifery care. My career has focused on women’s health, international health, & adolescent health. I believe in the power & normalcy of the birth process. It is an honor to care for women during such a significant time in their lives. I believe in empowering women to be active participants in their health care needs. In practice, I emphasize preventative health and aim for an integrative health model. As a dually certified as a nurse-midwife & family nurse practitioner, I provide midwifery services and primary care to women of all ages. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, camping, yoga, and art.
