I received my certificate in Midwifery from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 1984 and got my Master's degree from SUNY Stony brook in 1995. I started my career at Lincoln Hospital in the South Bronx. I later moved to New Jersey and started a private homebirth practice. I've lived in the Boston metro area since 1988, where I continue to practice midwifery at Mount Auburn Hospital. I worked part-time while my older children were younger and full-time since 1996.
It's impossible not to be drawn into the circle of life when attending the birth of a child. I do my best to bring this same level of personal energy to every prenatal and well woman gyn visit. I strongly support a woman's choice in childbirth and gynecological care. I have taught HypnoBirthing classes at Mount Auburn in the past and am a certified HypnoBirthing practitioner.
I started the Alternative Insemination practice at our Arlington, 22 Mill St office and work primarily out of that office . I provide full scope Well Woman gynecology care throughout a woman's life.
In 2013, I became a Consulting Hypnotist and am a certified member of the National Guild of Hypnotists.
I have a wonderful partner and family: four children and one step child. My children range in age from 30-12 years old. I have 2 grandchildren and another one on the way! In my spare time I love to dance, garden and travel, but mostly I like to spend time with my family.
