The information I learned will serve me well for many years to come!”

INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE?
Becoming a midwife has been a lifelong dream. I didn’t realize that this wonderful profession would lead me down the path of business. I have found over the years that midwives need to understand business, accounting, financing, marketing, negotiating, and so much more to be successful in today’s health care system. I love supporting women. By being able to participate in leadership roles and create amazing private practices, I can support midwives just as much as the pregnant women they care for! I am passionate about women’s empowerment and women business ownership on a global scale.
