“As a nurse-midwife, my approach is to find customized solutions to meet patients’ needs from preconception through postpartum care. It’s extremely satisfying to help patients make informed choices that meet their individualized needs while also providing the highest standard of care and ensuring the safest possible outcomes. I also extend this philosophy to gynecologic care outside pregnancy, focusing on how I can work together with patients to achieve their health goals in the way that works best for them.”
