About me

I grew up in Austin, Texas, and Seville, Spain. I attended the University of Colorado, in Boulder, for my undergraduate degree in Spanish literature, then returned to Austin for a master's degree in nursing at the University of Texas. I practiced as a labor and delivery nurse and women's health clinical nurse specialist, before returning to school for a post-graduate degree in midwifery at UC San Francisco. I was a midwife with Kaiser Permanente in Northern California for 8 years before moving to Portland, nearly 10 years ago, and was thrilled to be able to continue my practice with Kaiser Permanente.

About my practice

I work part-time for the midwifery service of the OB/GYN Department. I see members at the Salmon Creek Medical Office in Vancouver, and attend births at Sunnyside Medical Center in Portland. I am often meeting members for the first time when they come to the hospital in labor. One of my favorite parts of the job is the art of connecting with women and their families during such a vulnerable and momentous time, establishing the trust necessary to work together as a team.

How I thrive

Being physically active on a daily basis is important to me, as is fueling my body with nutritious, whole foods. I go to yoga once a week and am working on solidifying a daily 10-minute meditation practice. With this foundation, I'm left with good energy to run around with my family, out in nature, as much as possible. We like to hike, camp, kayak, and paddleboard, always with our dog in tow. I also belong to a hiking club and a book club and am on the board of the PTA of my children's school.
