I have worked with pregnant and laboring women for over 40 years, first as a labor and delivery nurse for 25 years. Then, I became a Certified Nurse Midwife in 1997 and I had a busy practice in Lincoln, Nebraska for 17 years, where I delivered over 2300 babies. My work was to help women find their way through wonderful and empowering birth experiences. It has been my dream to work in a birth center and my dream came true when I joined Heather at Birthing Your Way. I believe birth is a normal, healthy life event that needs to be supported, not "managed" in a medical way.
I also see women for gynecologic care, birth control, infection checks, and some menopause care. I am a Lactation Counselor and childbirth educator as well. I trained at the University of Nebraska and at Frontier University for Nurse Midwifery.
I have 4 children and 6 (soon to be 7) grandchildren. My husband and I moved to Utah last summer to be near our daughter and her family. We only have cats at home now, but we do get to spend more time with our grandson, Jackson. My favorite activities include knitting, gardening, and spending time with my family. It is my honor to help women reach their healthcare goals and to help bring God’s babies into the world, and to assist in the formation of strong, healthy families.
