Certified Nurse - Midwife
What kind of experience & specialized training do you have?

Before becoming a Certified Nurse-Midwife I served as a nurse for 11 years with experience caring for women and families both locally and abroad. My work involved various settings including a level III NICU, primary care family practice clinic and urgent care, birth assistant RN in a freestanding birth center, and medical mission clinic work in Kenya and Guatemala. My passion for women’s health, maternal and infant health and global health sparked my motivation to pursue a Master of Science in Nursing with a focus on Nurse-Midwifery. I completed my clinical practicum in south Central Nebraska with Obstetricians and Gynecologists, PC., where I provided full scope midwifery services, including contraception and preconception counseling, perimenopausal and postmenopausal care, annual well women visits, prenatal, intrapartum and postpartum care, as well as minor GYN complications. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Nursing at William Jewell College in Liberty, MO and my MSN from Frontier Nursing University in Hyden, Kentucky. I am accredited and board-certified by the American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB). I am also a member in the American College of Nurse Midwives (ACNM).

What do you like about delivering at OPRMC?

The spirit of collaborative care among the nurses, Certified Nurse-Midwives, OBGYNs and other care team members. The environment and structure of OPRMC are supportive of the midwifery model of care with strong professional relationships in place and access to endless resources, along with collaboration with a full range of health professionals to provide individualized, empowering and excellent care to each woman and family.

What do you enjoy most about being a Certified Nurse-Midwife?

I enjoy providing full scope midwifery and women’s health care to women across their lifespan. By providing care and services in so many stages and seasons of life it encourages strong relationships and continuity of care between myself and my clients. My philosophy of care centers around meeting clients where they are and striving to provide the knowledge, resources, and care to them to help empower their spiritual, physical and mental health. It is joy to walk alongside women during these important seasons of life and it is an honor that will never cease to amaze me.

What types of hobbies or activities do you enjoy?

I enjoy reading, spending time with my family and friends, spending time outdoors running or doing yoga, and training for various running races in Kansas City (5k, 10k, or half marathons).
