About the Provider

I knew very early on in my nursing career that I wanted to work in Women and children’s health. I have spent most of my career as a labor and delivery nurse at various hospitals in Philadelphia. I also worked as a nurse educator for undergraduate nursing students at Villanova University in Pennsylvania. I proudly worked with the American Academy of Pediatrics on a special project to investigate and prevent accidental deaths in children in the state of Pennsylvania. I went to midwifery school to be able to help women become partners in their obstetrical and gynecological care. My experiences as a midwife in New Jersey have been exceptional and I have loved every aspect of providing care to women from teen through menopause. My favorite part of my job is educating women about their obstetrical and gynecological health care. I am looking forward to providing care to girls and women in Lowcountry.
