Valerie C. Tchinang RN, CNM, WHNP-BC

"I have worked and practiced as a labor and delivery nurse for almost a decade. During this time, I enrolled at Georgetown University for Master's-level education to become a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner, certified by the American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB). My love for women's health and midwifery started at a very young age and continued to grow throughout my years of caring for laboring women as a labor and delivery nurse. While pursuing my Master's, I came to the realization that my true passion is caring for women throughout their life span, from puberty to childbearing years, through peri-menopause and menopause. My choice of career brings me tremendous joy and purpose. I consider it a true honor and privilege to serve women of all ages and in all aspects of healthy living."
