Born and raised in Maine, I first pursued an education in exercise physiology before being called to midwifery. I earned a Master of Science in Nursing degree from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, and hold board certification in both nurse-midwifery and family practice. As a nurse-midwife, my job is to provide every woman with current and evidence-based guidance that is free of judgment so that she may make the reproductive healthcare decisions that she knows are best for her and her family. I joined USF Health in late 2013 because it offers an exceptional range of resources and options for women as they face these often difficult choices throughout their lives. I am proud to be part of the Tampa Bay community and serve its women, their partners, and their babies.
