Obstetrics & Gynecology


My interest in birth started at the age of 7 when my cat went into labor and had kittens in my bedroom and I stayed up all night with her. My professional midwifery path began in Chicago after graduating from West Suburban School of Nursing, then Rush University, I worked 9 years in Labor and Delivery. I moved back to my hometown of Rochester and worked at Strong Hospital's birth centers and later with the Rochester Adolescent Maternity Program (RAMP). I completed Masters/Midwifery program at the University of Rochester in 1996 and have been with URMC Midwifery since then.

Initially, I believed midwifery was mostly about birth; over the years I have seen how the health of women of all ages can be improved by a midwifery approach that includes contraception, GYN care, and colposcopy services for abnormal PAP screening. I have enjoyed learning and adapting my skills to meet the needs of women and their families.

I live in the city of Rochester with my husband, have 2 grown sons, enjoy city life, and am involved politically and socially. I enjoy listening to music and being outdoors; if I can do both at the same time, even better.
