On Patients: Women are in charge of their own bodies. I’m there to give them support and guidance and then go along for the ride.
On Midwifery: Midwifery is all about being “with women.” As a nurse midwife, I can blend thorough training and knowledge of the science with the “art” of midwifery to help women stay healthy, and when they choose to become mothers, have a healthy baby and a satisfying birth experience.
About Me: Long ago, I was a young OB nurse who rapidly became frustrated with how women were treated during labor and birth. I returned to graduate school to become a nurse midwife to help change those experiences, and I’ve never looked back!
Personal Information: I love Port Angeles and taking advantage of the wonderful options to be outdoors here. I also love a good book and a bath. My husband is a park ranger and a guitarist in a local rock band. We have a daughter in college who is a constant source of joy.
