I currently am led faculty for NM/WH 712 Virtual Clinical Simulations. I was course faculty for NM702 Normal AP & PC716 PE courses 2023. I served on FNU faculty as Florida Regional Clinical Faculty for the CNEP and WHNP program tracks from 2017-2023. In 2000 I graduated from FNU (class 25) and received my nursing diploma education in New York at St Joseph's School of Nursing and a Bachelor of Science degree at Hartwick College. I completed a Master of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University in 2000. I completed my Doctorate of Nursing in 2019 from FNU. I have served as the Florida Affiliate President for ACNM for 10 years and on the Florida Council of Nurse-Midwifery board for the eight chapters since 2009. I served as a chapter chair/president in Fort Myers starting just after midwifery graduation, then in Orlando, and currently on the Tampa Bay chapter. I serve as the liaison for ACOG District XII and remain active in supporting collegial relationships at the local level. I have served as the legislative chair in Florida for ACNM since 2009. I have actively integrated clinical practice, education, public service, activism, and political involvement. I practiced midwifery in Fort Myers, Florida for seven years, primarily in low-resource settings with under-served populations, as well as building/opening a free-standing birth center. I provided homebirth, birth center or hospital options for women. I worked in Orlando for five years and currently reside in Madeira Beach, Florida. I served the Clearwater area at Mease Countryside Hospital at a private practice full-scope midwifery. I had privileges at The Birth Center of St Pete for 7 years until it closed in 2023. I assisted in getting CABC accreditation for that birth center. My primary areas of clinical and academic interests are providing options to all women and supporting students. I have also carved a gateway for engagement between Licensed Midwives and Certified Nurse-Midwives. I am prominent in legislative and lobbying efforts nationally with the Political Action Committee and affiliate legislative chair in Florida. I truly tirelessly educate and advocate while passionately offering safe access to birthing options. I am a member of the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM), the American Association of Birth Centers (AABC), the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), and Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), Chi Pi Chapter.
