Devoted to Advancing Women's Care
"I've watched women's health care grow and change dramatically since I began my career in the early 1970's. But there's one thing that hasn't changed, and that's the amount of trust women place in the doctors, nurses, midwives who are their partners in healthy pregnancies and deliveries. Every patient is an individual with her own special hopes and concerns. Getting to know my patients as women is important to me as a nurse midwife and rewarding to me as a woman."
