About the Provider

Provider Bio

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.
