I come to OHSU with a background as a licensed midwife and then certified nurse midwife. I am currently completing my PhD having completed a study looking at the transfer of vitamin D from mother to infant through breast milk. My future plans include continued research in the fields of women's health and lactation, with an emphasis on the Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD).
