Julie Quinn, CNM, has joined the care team at the HMH Rural Health Care Clinic. She is a seasoned labor and delivery nurse and a recent graduate of Texas Tech University with a Master’s in Nurse-Midwifery. Originally from Russia, she moved to the U.S. at the age of five, grew up in Maryland, and started her family abroad in Israel. She has been a Texan since 2006. Her adventurous soul has taken her on the “travel nursing journey” over the last several years.
Her most recent accomplishments include researching the benefits of intermittent monitoring throughout the labor process, advanced fetal monitoring certification, receiving her RNC-OB, and being lactation support for the night shift. Julie loves to be challenged and embraces opportunities to learn and grow not only as a provider but as a patient advocate.
Julie is passionate about health and wellness. Over the years, she has completed marathons, biked endless miles, skied the tallest mountains that are not black diamonds, and meditated throughout her yoga practices. She enjoys walking her fur baby Ginger, reading historical fiction/romance novels, and of course, relaxing with Netflix.
As a mom of three, she is familiar with the challenges and struggles of women, specifically new moms and adolescents who struggle with advocating for themselves and their newborns. Her personal values are that women of all ages should be treated with respect and support regardless of their healthcare choices and decisions. In her practice, a trusting relationship with patients provides her the ability to educate, advocate and provide options for the patient. Thus, after birthing her own three children in three different settings (birth center, home birth, hospital birth), support, education, empowerment, and patient advocacy became a lifelong goal.
