A Message from Leta:
I hold a Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP), which is a clinically focused doctorate, as compared to the traditional research-focused doctorate (PhD), and supports nursing’s professional transition to the level of other professions, such as Medicine (MD), Dentistry (DDS), Pharmacy (PharmD), Psychology (PsyD), and Physical Therapy (DPT).
My focus is providing attentive, compassionate care to pregnant women. I am passionate about prenatal education and encourage women to be involved in decisions about their care. I strive to provide the best in service and promote early access to prenatal care. I believe that by working together with my patients, we can attain the mutual goal of healthy moms and babies. I am an advocate and active participant with the WINGS organization, which assists women and children in the transition out of domestic violence situations.
