Obstetrics & Gynecology


My inspiration for becoming a health care provider came during my years in Mali, West Africa, as a Peace Corps Volunteer. Afterward, I became a Registered Nurse and then a Certified Nurse Midwife (SUNY Health Science Center, Brooklyn NY, 1992).

I feel blessed to have worked with a wide variety of women and their families, especially supporting them in their births, as a guest in a home, birth center, or hospital labor room. Being a part of the URMC Midwifery group is excellent! This team of midwives gives great care to the women of Rochester and that gives me great confidence and support too.

It's a real pleasure to attend births at Highland Hospital. The staff in the Family Maternity Center ensures excellent safety but also, of the three local hospitals I've worked with, it gives the best family support!
