Seeing Patients At: Bay Creek Midwifery and the Women's Health at Rochester General Hospital
I completed my Bachelor of Science in Nursing at SUNY College at Brockport in 2008. I have worked as a critical care nurse for most of my nursing career. I received my Master of Business Administration (MBA) in 2014 from the Simon School of Business at the University of Rochester, then went on to complete my Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) in Nurse-Midwifery from Frontier Nursing University.
As a 17-year-old young woman, I had the privilege to be cared for by a women's health nurse practitioner. This interaction set a course for the rest of my life and inspired me to pursue nursing. It was during my time in nursing school being educated and mentored by professors who were also midwives that exposed me to the influence of midwifery. The first delivery I ever witnessed with a midwife was right here at Rochester General Hospital and I've been hooked ever since!
As midwives, we are privileged to work with women when they are their most vulnerable. I love to work every day to protect and restore as much power and autonomy to the women we serve. Women who feel empowered, supported, and strong can do anything. It is my true belief that midwifery care can help women not only survive but also thrive!
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, snowboarding, camping, and exploring the hidden treasures of Rochester, NY.
