About Me

"I am originally a native of Missouri, but consider myself a (transplant) native Texan. I began my career in medicine as a paramedic. I moved to the Dallas Fort Worth area to work as a paramedic in 1995. I decided to return to academia in order to expand my horizons and received my Bachelor’s degree in nursing from UT Arlington and received my education as a nurse practitioner (NP) in women's health from UT Southwestern Medical Center. I completed my NP internship at Parkland Health and Hospital System in 2003 and continued to work there as a NP in many of the different women's services areas until 2008. In 2010 I returned to academia to study midwifery at The Midwifery Institute at Philadelphia University; and in August 2011, I received my Masters of Science in Midwifery. I completed my nurse-midwifery internship at Parkland Health and Hospital System.

As a Midwife, I offer woman-led care, supported by education, respect, and care. I believe that once woman are provided with all the information on a topic, women are the best at deciding on what is right for their bodies. My philosophy on birth is that it is a safe, natural, beautiful, and powerful process for women and families. Every pregnancy and birth is as unique as the lady experiencing the life event. As such, every women has the right to safe, satisfying health care and every family has the right to participate in decisions regarding pregnancy and birth, and to share the experience of that birth in a family-centered environment."
