Julie acquired her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Arizona State University. Since becoming a registered nurse in 2011, she has dedicated herself to providing patient-focused, holistic care to women and families. As a nurse, she worked in hospital labor and delivery, mother/baby care, and in the NICU. She has also worked as a nurse at a freestanding birth center. Her experience as a nurse includes caring for women with high-risk pregnancies and counseling trauma and abuse survivors during pregnancy, miscarriage, infertility, and postpartum depression. Before becoming a nurse Julie worked as a birth doula for women planning their birth at home, in the hospital, or at a birth center.
Julie was a student in the nurse-midwifery education program through Frontier Nursing University in Kentucky. During this program she completed a rotation with a hospital based midwife in Arizona before coming to Beach Cities Midwifery and completing a rotation with us as well.
Julie now joins our team as a midwife. Julie am passionate about providing evidence-based care while educating and empowering families to formulate their own informed choices about healthcare.
