Simone grew up in a military family and spent her childhood moving across the United States and Central America; however, she identifies El Paso, Texas, as home. It was here that she attended the University of Texas at El Paso and received her Bachelor’s degree in the Science of Nursing in 2011. The next three years were spent working as a labor and delivery nurse in various high-risk maternity units across Texas, gaining valuable experience and insight. In the spring of 2014, she moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and was given her first opportunity to work alongside certified nurse midwives in a hospital setting and played a role in helping women achieve their desired natural, physiologic labors. At the University of New Mexico Hospital, she witnessed the success that a team of midwives and OB-GYNs could achieve with a collaborative approach. Motivated by the impact and sense of empowerment that these certified nurse midwives were instilling in the women they served, Simone decided to return to school in 2014 and started her graduate degree at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. Her education over the next two years prepared her for the wide scope of practice that certified nurse midwives are able to provide to women throughout the lifespan, and further developed her passion for providing a holistic approach to women’s health. After graduation from midwifery school, Simone made the decision to leave hospital-based practice temporarily, and moved down to Weslaco, Texas, where she spent the next couple of months as a fellow at Holy Family Birth Center, an out-of-hospital facility. Her background in high-risk obstetrics, combined with low-risk midwifery care, has allowed her to identify the normalcies of natural childbirth, as well as recognize when further consultation or a higher management of care is indicated. Since the summer of 2016, she has developed an affinity for the area and the population and is now an advocate for women and their families seeking care in the Rio Grande Valley.
