Hi! I'm Holly. It's so nice to see you here. I can't wait to meet you in person.
My journey to midwifery began in early 2000, with the birth of my first child. I was a young teen mom who received amazing care from one of my nurses, and was inspired to care for birthing women one day.
With our third pregnancy, the desire to have unmedicated birth led us to choose midwifery care in the out of hospital setting. Throughout that pregnancy, I learned about the Midwifery Model of Care, and it resonated with me. I had had fine experiences with my OB’s (obstetrician) and hospital deliveries, but I was drawn to the depth and type of care I received from my midwives.
I knew in that pregnancy that when the season was right, I wanted to be a midwife. We continued to use midwifery care with all of our pregnancies, and have had our last five out of seven children at home with midwives at our side.
As a Certified Nurse Midwife, I am nationally board certified by the American Midwifery Certification Board; and am licensed in the state of Texas as a Certified Nurse Midwife and Advanced Practice Registered Nurse. I obtained my Master’s Degree in Nursing with a specialty certificate in Nurse Midwifery from Frontier Nursing University. Prior to becoming a Certified Nurse Midwife, I worked in women’s health as a Registered Nurse; with experience in birth center, home-birth, and hospital settings. As a Certified Nurse Midwife, I served women in a busy hospital based practice before opening my own practice.
I enjoy all aspects of midwifery care, but there are a few areas that are of special interest to me. Having been a teen parent myself and overcoming the hardships that come with teen parentage, I love to educate and care for youth. Maternal mental health is near and dear to my heart, as many mother's suffer silently in postpartum depression.
Walking alongside my life journey with me is my fireman/paramedic husband, seven children, and our doggies. I enjoy weightlifting, trying new restaurants, and am a Disney fanatic.
