Katie decided to become a midwife while pursuing her first Bachelors degree in Gender and Women’s Studies at The University of Rochester in New York. This led her to the high-tech, fast-paced world of New York City for an education at The Columbia University School of Nursing. She studied in clinics around the city, but didn’t feel like she understood the true meaning of midwifery until she got to train under a homebirth midwife in Lancaster, PA. Before and after graduation, Katie worked as a labor and delivery nurse. Her first midwifery job was in a small private practice where she attended over 300 births.
Coming to The Birth Center, according to Katie, is like “coming home.” “I get to give women the type of care I would hope to receive myself. I am so very excited to be a part of this loving family.”
