What Brought You To The Palouse?
” I come from a long line of Cougars, 3 generations! So, I’ve always said I was born with a “Go Cougs” flag in my hand. We moved back to the area in 2004, as this was where my husband grew up and always wanted to return to live. You can kind of say it was always in our blood!”
“First and foremost, please call me Bobbi!”
Area Of Expertise
Nurse-midwives work specifically with low-risk women, providing full scope women’s health care, preconception care, maternity care throughout pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Midwives view pregnancy and birth as normal life events that can be a healthy time in your life.
As a full time primary care provider, Bobbi is part of our Family Medicine & OB Team. At this time I am only accepting female patients, but no matter your age, I would be happy to assist you along your journey to a healthier you!
To all expectant families, I want you to know how excited I am for the journey you are about to embark on as you become parents or expand your family! The best part of my job is that I have the rare privilege to witness rare moments that just restore faith in humanity and the beautiful miracles involved in the pregnancy and birthing process.
To be able to witness the magic and see the transition when men become fathers and women become mothers is a priceless gift and one I treasure! I am dedicated to providing my patients with all the education, help and support that they need as they start or continue to grow their families. As a midwife, the ability to empower pregnant women is my greatest passion and I want all my patients to become experts of their own pregnancies.
When I am not working in the OB sector, I really enjoy working with our college age female populations, educating and supporting them to take ownership of their own health. I am focused on all things associated to Women’s Health and would be thrilled to provide primary care to those looking for someone with my background.

Bobbi feels that we are so fortunate to have such a center of healthcare excellence with devoted and highly capable staff! She loves being able to be part of our local medical community and wouldn’t want to practice anywhere else! Happily married and mother of three wonderful children, a daughter and twin sons, Bobbi enjoys spending as much time as possible with her family! Outside of work, she enjoys a wide variety of hobbies and keeps busy with her community involvement. She loves to attend cultural, musical and athletic events. Bobbi states that she loves this quote from a Barbara Katz Rothman who is very active in fields of sociology, childbirth and midwifery:
“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers ~ strong, competent, capable mothers who thrust themselves and know their inner strength.”
