    Director, UCSF Nurse-Midwifery/WHNP Education Program

    Interests include the intersection of midwifery, health policy, inequities in women’s health care, and health care outcomes. In the context of health care reform and health care crisis, I believe that midwifery care is a unique solution, making midwifery education a fundamental contribution to a sophisticated health care workforce.

    In 2014, she was awarded the Kitty Ernst Award by the American College of Nurse-Midwives, which honors an exceptional, relatively new CNM who has been certified for less than ten years, and has demonstrated innovative, creative endeavors in midwifery and/or women's health clinical practice, education, administration, or research.

    Current Areas of Teaching:
    Management of Antepartum Complications
    Disparities in Women’s Health Care
    Professional Issues

    Professional Activities:
    California Nurse-Midwives Association: Chair of the Health Policy Committee
    American College of Nurse-Midwives: Chair of the Diversification and Inclusion Taskforce
