As a Fauquier Health OB/GYN and Midwifery patient, I strive to educate patients about what it is they wish for in pregnancy/delivery. This allows me to create an individualized care plan for each pregnancy, labor, the birth of the baby, and the ever-important season of postpartum care.”

She will provide care during a woman's labor and the birth of her baby and postpartum care at Fauquier Hospital.

Yes, that is right…all the way from Georgia to Maine, all 2190 miles. Dan took 5 months in 1981 to hike the AT. I completed my section hike of the AT in 1987. We met at an annual Gathering of Long Distance Hikers in Pipestem, West VA in 1989, and hit it off, marrying on Valentine’s Day, in 1993.”
