Rebecca Becky Skovgaard ProfileRebecca Skovgaard C.N.M., M.S.

Clinical Case Study Author for periFACTS®

Rebecca (Becky) is a master’s educated, certified midwife. Since 1996, Becky has been a regular contributor to periFACTS OB/GYN Academy. Being from Montana, it is no surprise that she is drawn to the outdoors as an avid gardener. Yet somehow, as a busy clinician, she has found time and energy to publish 12 romance novels.

James (Jim) is the cook of his family. One of his signature recipes is Riced Cauliflower: Rough chop a head of cauliflower and reduce to rice consistency in a food processor. Add 2/3 cup of chicken broth, 1 teaspoon of crushed garlic, a few mint leaves, red pepper flakes, and chopped water chestnuts.  Cook on the stove at medium heat for 20 minutes and serve.
