More About Me

I graduated from the University of California at Berkeley as an Integrative Biology major and Conservation Resource Studies minor. I was always fascinated with relationship between the human body and the physical environment. As a labor support doula, a postpartum doula, and a midwife assistant, I continued my education, went to DePaul University, and obtained an MS in Nursing.

My passion for keeping mothers and babies healthy led me to teach Pediatric clinical rotations as an adjunct professor at City Colleges of Chicago, and later become a tenured Assistant Professor and Certified Nurse Educator (CNE).

I have published two nursing textbooks for nursing students or anyone who wants a modern look at childbirth and childrearing. Evidenced-based Pediatric Nursing (2018) and Evidenced-based Obstetric Nursing (2019). These are modern textbooks that educate nurses in wellness and health promotion and encourage collaboration between traditional and western medicines.
