I knew when I was very young that I wanted to be a doctor. After experiencing a severe viral infection as a teenager, I spent a great deal of time in the doctor's office and I watched my family doctor as he educated me about my condition while caring for my health needs. I chose  Maternal Fetal  Medicine because I have always felt a deep drive to empower women to take care of themselves as well as others and to strive for their best for themselves and their families. I attended residency in Fort Worth and then traveled to Boston for my fellowship in  Maternal Fetal  Medicine at Tuft's University. My husband and I made our way back to Fort Worth where we live with our two sons.

I have been a nurse for over 20 years with 18+ years experience working with all aspects of women's health care. I grew up in North Central Illinois where I was blessed to have met my husband. We moved to Fort Worth in 2007. We have 2 school aged daughters, and when I am not working I am a proud soccer mom.

I first knew I wanted to become a midwife when I gave birth to my first child. After a 25 year career as a labor and delivery nurse, I made the decision to return to school and become a Certified Nurse-Midwife. I attended Frontier Nursing University where I obtained a Masters of Science in Nursing.

My husband and I then moved to Austin, Texas from Castle Rock, Colorado where I practiced at Austin Area Birth Center in full scope midwifery care. I attended both in and out of hospital births for two years. We moved to the DFW area in 2015 and I was employed by Parkland Memorial Healthcare as a CNM in their maternal-fetal medicine clinic.
