People are not only a body, but they are spirit and soul. Each person is unique and precious. Healing needs to meet the needs of the spirit, soul, and body. I love seeing people receive what they need to get truly healed.

I believe I was called to be a midwife nurse. As a child, I dressed my Barbie dolls in maternity tops. My philosophy is to partner with a client to get her the best outcome and the highest satisfaction. I am there to have the eyes of a hawk for problems and the heart of a lion to be brave to do what's right, but also have gentle hands to advocate and serve.

Areas Of Interest

Women need to be heard. It is not just about getting healthy or having a healthy birth. Healthcare should be empowering as well as compassionate. Making every facet of healthcare about her is my passion because birth is sacred.

My family is a huge priority for me. It is my job to spoil my grandchildren with travel opportunities and time. I love to travel for mission work, especially to Haiti. I spend my other free time gardening because working in the dirt and seeing things grow makes me happy. Being involved in church activities also satisfies my soul.
