From a young age, Emily has always been fascinated with the human body,
babies, and birth. She remembers coming home after school to watch ‘A
Baby Story’ or ‘Life in the ER’ on television. That
inspiration, coupled with a mentorship from a local midwife, only confirmed
Emily’s calling to be a midwife.
To Emily, midwifery is a true passion and she loves everything that comes
with it. As a certified nurse midwife, Emily has completed both master-degree
level nursing school and an additional graduate degree in midwifery. While
Emily provides pregnancy care to expecting mothers, Emily also helps women
of all ages as a primary care provider.
The term 'midwife' means 'with woman.' Emily can do all
of the things any OB/GYN or family medicine provider can do for low-risk
patients, except c-sections. Whether that is helping a teenage girl during
puberty or helping a college-aged student through her first gynecologic
exam, to helping first time mothers through pregnancy, Emily empowers
women as they make healthcare choices.
Outside of the clinic, Emily enjoys spending time with her husband and
three daughters, as well as knitting and reading. Before Emily focused
on nursing, she was an opera major in college. Much to her daughters’
dismay, Emily still likes to sing around the house and play piano.
