“I want each person to feel that their questions were answered and their needs were met – even if we weren’t able to solve their problem that day. They understood their options—the risks, the benefits—they had an active role in shaping their care plan and they understand the path forward. Most of all, they feel heard.”
Holly worked as an ER, ICU and flight nurse for more than 20 years, which helped her realize her true passion for combining her interest in women’s health with her desire to connect with patients in a deeper and more lasting way. Today, she enjoys building relationships with her patients and their families and empowering women through education about their bodies, health, wellness and the labor and delivery process. She strives to make every interaction positive and particularly appreciates caring for young adults, taking the fear out of the unknown and building a positive foundation for lifelong self-care. During her long career as a nurse, she supported many patients and families at the end of life. As a nurse-midwife, she loves supporting women and families as they welcome new life during labor, delivery and in the first cherished moments of parenthood.
Holly is married with four awesome adult children whom she enjoys parenting with a healthy dose of humor. She and her husband love the outdoors, including mountain climbing, hiking and cycling.
