Current Women's Health Nurse Practitioner student at the University of Cincinnati. Upon graduation in August, 2021 I will have completed my program along with 672 practicum hours related to women's health and gynecology. During my 14 year professional nursing career I have had a primary focus on women's health care, specializing in labor and delivery, obstetrical prenatal coordinator, and as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.. Those many and varied experiences allowed me to discover my passion for taking care of women and pursue a graduate degree in nursing as a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner. I am looking forward to providing quality care with the unique issues that women face throughout their lifespan including general women's health care needs, medical aesthetics, hormonal therapy, self care and so much more.
