Candidate Statement Related to Office:

I am so fortunate to belong to a profession, a legacy really, of women who have fought for the privilege of serving women. The role of the Nominating Committee is to find that next generation of leaders, come along beside them, and encourage them to use their talents for the good of both women and midwives. In my roles as a practicing midwife, Texas affiliate president, and clinical faculty for Frontier Nursing University, I have had the opportunity to build relationships with so many intelligent and passionate midwives throughout Texas and the West who could make a real difference, but might never have thought of running for national office.  A role on the Nominating Committee would allow me to reach out to those talented individuals and tell them of the potential I see in them. Many great leaders would not have thrust themselves into the spotlight, but were encouraged to seek office by those around them who saw how their particular skills could fill a need. I hope to help bring the incredible talents of these midwives to ACNM, so they can propel the college forward and add to the legacy of strong leaders that have brought us this far
