”Attentiveness, profound understanding and respect are essential in connecting and balancing the
patient’s need for information, decision-making and responsibility. 1 am very proud to be a member of
the midwifery profession, enabling me to empower women with a philosophy of care that is both
meaningful and life altering.” – Jackie

Her journey towards a Iife-long desire to become a midwife. After fulﬁlling her nursing requirements, she
was admitted to The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, and completed her Certificate
of Midwifery in 1995.
From 2001—2003, Jackie was a member of the Hudson Center for Women’s Health midwifery practice at Nyack Hospital and provided fulI-scope midwifery care. At that time, she attained her license as a Nurse Practitioner in Women‘s Health in New York State.
