I knew from a very young age that I wanted to be a nurse. I wanted to put my caring and compassionate personality to use. Nursing school was a whirlwind with multiple rotations and very early mornings. The early mornings and chaos didn’t seem so daunting when I started my labor and delivery experience. I felt completely at home. I wanted to be involved in as many deliveries as I could and felt a real connection with my laboring moms. That same year I started seeing a midwife for my own care and wanted to learn more. She took the time to get to know me and teach me what I needed to know to properly take care of myself. I was inspired. I want to provide that same type of care to adolescents, new moms and those advancing with age. I am so excited to finally have that opportunity.
Having the ability to be part of someone’s life so intimately is truly a blessing. Being able to provide evidence based practice and allowing women to make the choices best for them is empowering. The midwifery profession has taught me so much about who I am as a person and the type of care I want to provide each and every woman.
I grew up in Glencoe, MN. My nursing career took me down to Rochester to work at Mayo Clinic but I just recently found a place to live in Plymouth. When I’m not working I love to spend time with my family. I feel blessed to have such a close-knit family where I can “drop in” anytime I want. I also love to travel, read, spend time with my friends, and go on new adventures!
