leadership Nurse Midwife Speaker and expertise: Screening for Abuse in the Health Care Setting Speaker and expertise: Screening for Human Trafficking in the Health Care System

From day one as a nurse midwife, it was my goal to provide individualized care, empowering my patients to make healthy decisions for their lives.  It was also vital to understand their truths, face the realities, and provide support so steps toward healing and health could then follow.  Thus, early on in my career, screening for relationship abuse was incorporated into my day-to-day practice.  I received additional training on the issue, and learned much from my patients.  For over 25 years I provided training to students and health care professionals on effectively screening for abuse in the health care setting.  Due to the overlap of abuse behaviors with the various human trafficking dynamics, my presentation evolved and led to seminars focused on screening for human trafficking in the health care setting.  More recently I've been volunteering at Breaking Free, St. Paul, MN, including the revolutionary Men Breaking Free sessions, which educate men who have been arrested for soliciting trafficked victims.   It is also an honor to be in the process of becoming certified via SAFE iACT training.  Thus, my passion for midwifery has evolved into a passion for addressing relationship abuse, including sexual abuse, and for addressing the issue of human trafficking.
