I grew up in Boston and moved to Nashville for graduate school in 2001. After receiving a PhD in Microbiology in 2006, I decided to go back to nursing school to become a Certified Nurse-Midwife. I currently practice as a full scope CNM as well as teaching Obstetrical nursing at Belmont. In my spare time I love to play games and sports with my two young kids.
