I was born in Idaho and moved to a tiny town in Wyoming when I was 12. I attended nursing school at a small community college in Rock Springs, Wyoming and then earned my BSN at University of Wyoming. I was always very interested in birth and families and originally thought my calling was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. I was able to work in a busy NICU for a year in Utah and then my husbands work took us back to Wyoming, where there are not any NICU’s. I landed in labor and delivery and fell completely in love with supporting women and families during birth and postpartum. I knew then that my calling was to someday be a Certified Nurse Midwife.
I worked as a labor and delivery nurse for 17 years and eventually earned my Masters of Science in Nursing and Midwifery at Frontier Nursing University. I am passionate about supporting and caring for women in whatever stage of life they are in. I love being present in the amazing process of birth. I love empowering women to make their own informed decisions when it comes to family planning and all other aspects of well-woman care.
When not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband and four young boys. We spend a lot of time playing and watching all sports, especially baseball. We love the splendor of Colorado and spending time outdoors.
I am incredibly honored to be a part of the Women’s Clinic team and look forward to supporting the women of northern Colorado as they make health care decisions.
