I LOVE TEACHING WOMEN HOW TO CARE FOR THEIR BODIES AND IMPROVE THEIR LIVES.

I have always wanted to be a nurse. In my youth I was often found helping with the births of kittens, puppies, and lambs.  I was fascinated with new life. I proceeded through nursing school at Salt Lake Community College and Brigham Young University-Idaho and began the path of helping women learn about their bodies, their needs during birth, and how to feel empowered with knowledge and understanding.  I love teaching women how to care for their bodies and improve their lives.  I have spent the last 20 years caring for laboring mothers and sick infants in the NICU.  I spent two years in the adult ICU setting further developing my skills.   I continued my education at the University of Utah where I studied midwifery and women’s health nurse practitioner specialties, earning my Doctoral degree. I feel that this course of study allows me to better care for women with the most up-to-date information, empowering women to make the best choices for their life.

I was born in Nevada and raised around the United States…an “Army brat”.  I have three boys, one girl, two grandchildren and the most supportive husband ever.  I spend my limited free time quilting, gardening, shopping and being outdoors.
