Christy began caring for women during pregnancy and birth 20 years ago, first as a student nurse completing her preceptorship attending home births with a nurse-midwife, including numerous times
as a friend acting as a doula, then as a nurse in the hospital, and finally as a midwife.
Moving to Texas in 2007, Christy started her own midwifery practice and has cared for hundreds of families around DFW since then. As a midwife she focuses on weaving together the timeless
traditions of midwifery with modern evidence-informed care. Her greatest fascination in midwifery is how each and every woman she serves continues to teach her how to be a better
Christy has lived in the Philippines while training as a midwife, and she returned again in 2013 to help in the wake of a disastrous super typhoon, and she’s also spent a short time serving as a
midwife in Tanzania, East Africa. When not midwife-ing, you can find Christy and her newly-discovered green thumb tending to her houseplants and experimenting with gardening. She loves
following the sport of professional bull riding (she even owns some bulls too!), spends too many hours listening to podcasts, and dreams of living in the mountains one day.
