University of New Mexico
PhD Student

I am a nurse-midwife and PhD student at the University of New Mexico College of Nursing. My research interests include perinatal quality improvement, interprofessional collaboration, midwifery and nursing education in developing countries, and perinatal home visiting programs. I currently work as a certified nurse-midwife at a tribal healthcare facility on the Navajo Nation in northern Arizona (Tuba City Regional Healthcare Corporation). My interests in quality improvement and interprofessional collaboration stem largely from my involvement in leadership roles on the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative
