I received my first degree in bio-psychology from the University of Vermont. After working in the area of research, behavioral modification and counseling, I decided to return to school to pursue my true passion, nursing. I obtained my Bachelors of Science in nursing (BSN) from the University of Nevada-Reno, and started out as a medical/telemetry nurse.
I too, have always loved babies! As a nursing student, I had a rotation on the labor and delivery unit. My clinical professor was a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM). She taught me about the midwifery model of care and since then I have became an avid supporter. I was grateful to join the team at The Birth Center in October 2013. As a nurse at The Birth Center, I get the opportunity to provide individualized care and work one-on-one with families. Today, we are blessed to have choices of where we give birth. The Birth Center is a beautiful place to give birth and an amazing place to work!
As a nurse, I divide my working hours at The Birth Center and the UC Davis Medical Center.
