Obstetrics & Gynecology


I have dreamed of becoming a midwife since I was young. Along the path to achieving this dream, I received my bachelor’s degree in sociology from Goucher College and spent time shadowing home birth and hospital-based midwives in the U.S. and abroad. After college, I served as an AmeriCorps health educator in the women’s health department of a Federally Qualified Health Center before receiving my nursing and midwifery degrees from Yale School of Nursing. I am passionate about the midwifery model of promoting holistic reproductive healthcare through shared decision-making and a profound trust of the body’s natural processes. From catching babies to providing contraceptive care and performing annual exams (and everything in between!), it is an honor and privilege to care for the reproductive health needs of individuals throughout their lives.

I am originally from the Finger Lakes region, and I’m delighted to return home to upstate New York to begin my practice. In my spare time, I love to hike, ski, and bake pies.
