As an obstetrics nurse for over 20 years, I have witnessed countless postpartum hemorrhages. As a nurse-entrepreneur, I wanted to be a part of the solution to reduced the morbidity and mortality associated with the hemorrhages. I have worked with my business partner, Dr. James Weimer, PhD, of the Penn SEAS, on the Vasowatch project for a couple of years. Together we are working to make childbirth safer by helping the obsetric staff to be more prepared with advanced knowledge about a woman’s risk for a postpartum hemorrhage.
I currently work as both a bedside OB nurse and a clinical OB instructor for the UPenn School of Nursing.
