Specialties: Personalized women’s health care with emphasis on pregnancy and childbirth. I strongly believe in the birth process and I am very passionate about educating women on the choices they have and working with women to decide what kind of care is best for them. I also enjoy educating young women on women health issues, birth control, safe sex and how to take care of their bodies

Hobbies & Interests: I am a country girl, I love country music and my favorite thing to do on a night off is put on one of my many pair of cowgirl boots and go line-dancing, I also enjoy spend-ing time with my three kids, Marli, Maxton, and Maci Paige.

Fun Facts: I went straight to nursing school from high school with the plan to go on to work at Children’s ER to get experience so I could eventually be a flight nurse. I stumbled on a job on the mother infant unit through school but still wanted to end up in an ER because I thought mother/infant nursing was too slow paced and boring…but then I was offered a job as a new grad in Labor and Delivery…I took the job just to put in my one year that I had to to fulfill my ed-ucation payment assistance, with plans to leave as soon as the year ended. BUT, after that year I fell in love with helping women through labor and delivery and was so mesmerized by each and every birth, as well as enjoying the occasional adrenaline rush of an emergency. Found that labor and delivery was the perfect combination of happy, routine caring for women and the need for a specialized skill set that I found very interesting. I also worked in the labor and delivery units at a few other hospitals and learned that there are many ways to do things and that sometimes the best intervention is to not intervene. Fifteen years later I decided I wanted to use that skill set to care for women in a more complete manner so I went back to school to get my CNM. I love my job so very much! So glad I was given that first job!
