Provider Bio

From the Provider

“My path to midwifery started at a young age with a strong curiosity for medicine and a desire to serve others. My formal introduction came when I was working as a volunteer doula--and it was love at first sight! The patient-centered, evidence-based approach that midwifery takes is a perfect fit for me and I feel fortunate to work in a role where I can build relationships with women across the lifespan. My goal is for my patients to leave each visit feeling supported and confident in making decisions about their health.”

About the Provider

Anna was drawn to nurse-midwifery by her desire to support women through the powerful and emotional experience of birth. She enjoys the relationships she is able to form with her patients and believes that providing evidence-based care and education empowers women in their health care decision-making. Anna’s clinical interests include obstetric care, family planning and contraceptive counseling, adolescent health care and counseling and screening for sexually transmitted infections.

Prior to becoming a midwife, Anna worked as a nurse and legislative advocate for women’s health issues and is a member of the Oregon Chapter of the American College of Nurse-Midwives. During her training, she was recognized for her academic achievement as a member of the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing and was a recipient of the Helene Fuld Health Trust Scholarship.

    Is there anything else you would like to share about your experience with your provider?

    I really appreciated that my decision not to get weighed was respected and that I was not asked questions that would trigger my eating disorder. Being in a bigger body I am often shamed and given harmful advice by medical professionals. It makes going to the doctor very stressful. I appreciate that the focus stayed on the purpose of my visit and not any other health issues that are being management by other medical team members.

    I felt so respected and empowered with all the choices given to me in regards to my pregnancy and delivery. It made my whole experience so much more special, and alleviated so much of my anxiety just feeling like I had some say in what was happening.
