Accepting New Patients
Professional Statement
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. 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 2 granddaughters were born in 2013 and 3 more in 2016—all girls! Only 2 live in Seattle and I spend as much of my free time with them as possible. The other 3 live in Ontario, Canada—I try to visit them 2-3x/year. I also enjoy Cross-fit, kayaking, knitting, reading and traveling. I lived, practiced, and taught midwifery in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for 20 years.
