I grew up in a small community not far from Kingwood and when I was a child my mother was friends with the local community midwife. I was always fascinated by her and the care she provided to families. By being a midwife, she was an active part in strengthening the community she served. I felt called to midwifery even then. When I was pregnant, I received care from a nurse midwife with both of my daughters and felt so supported and empowered during the process and beyond. I fell in love with the midwifery model of care and the ripples it creates with patients, their families, and their communities.
I am a DNP-CNM graduate of the University of Washington in Seattle. I believe in empowering women, patients, and their families through the midwifery model of care and providing patient-centered care through collaboration and shared decision-making. I have experience as a registered nurse in labor, delivery, recovery, and postpartum. I have worked with community midwives in the clinical setting and attended homebirths. I also have global women's health experience volunteering in Haiti, Uganda, the Brazilian and Peruvian Amazon. After spending a decade in the Pacific Northwest, it was time to come back home to my Texas roots and family. I am proud to be a provider at Care for Women and to serve my community.
My personal interests: gardening, owning way too many houseplants, hiking, seeing live music with my family, shopping for vintage dresses and vinyl. I love coffee, my pets, and my family!
