    Personal Statement

    I believe women and families should be treated as I would want myself or one of my daughters to be treated. Pregnancy and birth are monumental life events for a family, and I am an advocate for family-centered care. I decided to become a certified nurse midwife many years ago after caring for women during birth because I wanted to be a part of their greater journey.

    When my husband Rob and I are not in Lexington, we love being outdoors and can be found in our cabin in the Red River Gorge. I enjoy hiking, quilting and spending time with my three children, who I consider to be my greatest achievements.
