Philosophy of Care

I strive to connect with women and their families on a personal level, respecting them as individuals with their own set of cultural and spiritual beliefs and recognizing that every woman’s birthing experience is unique. My dedication to empowering women to lead healthy lives, through education and provision of quality health care, and my passion for enabling families to benefit from a positive birth experience have energized me for over thirty years.

Personal Interests

We moved to Seattle from Lancaster, PA (where I worked in a busy midwifery practice for 13 years) in June 2011 to be closer to family. First two grandbabies were born in September 2013 and I spend as much of my free time as possible with them! I also enjoy Crossfit, kayaking, knitting, reading and traveling. I lived, practiced, and taught midwifery in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for 20 years.
