Through the years, I have been fortunate to have been involved with a wonderful community of midwives, attending many educational conferences and social gatherings in Arizona and across the country, both as student and teacher. I have taught neonatal resuscitation skills since 1992 and have been blessed to help many midwifery students with their apprenticeships. In addition, I have been challenged to help develop testing and licensing procedures in both Arizona and nationally.
As I have been catching babies for many years, midwifery has become a lifestyle for me. One of my favorite things about this work is the wonderful relationships I have been fortunate to develop with so many diverse and extended families throughout Arizona. I learn from every woman I work with and look forward to every birth I attend.
