Amy earned a Bachelor’s degree from Baylor University and a Master’s degree from Texas Woman’s University. She obtained a Post-Graduate Certificate in Midwifery from the Parkland School of Nurse-Midwifery/UT Southwestern Medical School. She also has a Post-Graduate certification as a women’s health care nurse practitioner. Her excellent clinical skills coupled with her academic achievements led to her being one of the youngest faculty members teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels at Texas Woman’s University. First introduced to midwifery during her first pregnancy, Amy and her husband felt so safe and cared for with every visit. During the birth, her nurse-midwife was at her side reminding her that she was strong and capable to bring her son into this world. It was a very empowering and spiritual experience. It was then that she knew midwifery was her calling. Amy feels that it is a blessing to support women during an incredibly important time of their lives. She wants all women to feel empowered by their birth experience. As a CNM, she reminds women that they are strong and that their body knows exactly how to grow their baby and bring their child into this world. Baylor Medical Center at McKinney has developed a warm, quiet, family-friendly environment for women choosing to birth in a hospital setting. Amy has enjoyed and is passionate about caring for women who desire a hospital birth under the care of a nurse-midwife.
