I was born and raised in New York on a dairy farm and attended William Smith College where I received a BA in philosophy. During college, I focused on medical philosophy with an emphasis on birth philosophy in different cultures. I studied with midwives in India, and at that time, I was interested in becoming a midwife myself. I studied nursing at SUNY Stony Brook and worked as a nurse at Planned Parenthood in Boston when I graduated. While in Boston, I met my husband and as he is a Colorado native we moved here to Denver. I attended midwifery school at the University of Colorado and my first midwifery job was here at Rose beginning in 2001.
I believe that pregnancy and childbirth can be the most remarkable and life-changing event in a woman's life. Women need guidance, reassurance and TLC to get through the process in a way that is beneficial to herself and the child. Mothering can be a transformative time, and it is my belief that pregnancy and childbirth are preparation for that transformation. A midwife is the ideal person to guide women through this remarkable time in their lives.
