Michelle M. Davis 

“Midwifery encapsulates everything that I love and is a role which I feel I was made for. My title of a “Certified Nurse Midwife,” is more than a job, rather a privilege and a vocation. I believe that collaboration is most effective when it occurs in a system that facilitates communication, and is characterized by mutual respect and trust, professional responsibility, and accountability.”
