Prior to becoming a midwife, Susan worked alongside midwives and observed how they interacted with their patients. It was through those experiences that she realized she wanted to become a midwife herself. She has practiced as a certified nurse midwife since 1998, and continues to help women throughout their pregnancy journey. She now delivers babies at Northside Hospital Cherokee.

Susan practiced in West Virginia prior to joining Cherokee Women’s Health. Originally from New Jersey, she received a Master of Science in Midwifery from Philadelphia University and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the College of New Jersey. She also received training at the Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing.
