Mary found her way to midwifery in a large lecture hall as a confused undergraduate college student. The first midwife that she ever met was a women’s health professor who emphasized individualized, person-centered healthcare while discussing women’s health not solely by anatomy but in the context of women’s lives. This philosophy resonated with Mary and after graduating from the University of Michigan with a degree in Women’s Studies, she then continued to nursing school. After nursing school, Mary relocated to Nashville, TN and worked as a nurse in a psychiatric hospital before attending midwifery school at Vanderbilt University. Mary strongly believes in the strength and power of women and the beauty of birth. She is passionate about caring for women during all stages of their lives.
For the past three years, Mary has worked as a midwife at a community hospital in Chicago, IL caring for a diverse population of women. She and her family have happily relocated to Colorado. Outside of attending births (one of her greatest privileges), you can find Mary spending time with her young son, running, hiking, or skiing.
