ELIZABETH (LIZZI) BRINK, DNP, CNM
I became a registered nurse in 2010, and even before I graduated I knew I wanted to be a midwife. After completing nursing school, I spent several years working in various nursing positions, including primary care, women’s medical-surgical, gynecologic-oncology, and labor and delivery. Throughout these experiences, I gained a unique perspective of women’s healthcare across the lifespan. That perspective helped me when I entered midwifery practice in 2016 in Tacoma, WA, where I practiced full-time in a hospital setting for two years just prior to moving to Colorado in June 2018.
I aspire to provide holistic, wellness-focused care to women throughout their lifespan in an environment where pregnancy and birth are recognized and celebrated as normal, healthy, empowering events. I believe that by uniting evidence-based practice, the ancient art of midwifery, holistic medicine, and patient education, I can support women in achieving optimal outcomes in their health and lives. I love the unique role that midwifery fills, and I am honored to care for women.
In my free time, I enjoy exploring Colorado, dabbling in mountaineering, and trying to love skiing as much as my husband does. I also have a great interest in the role of functional nutrition and herbal therapies in women’s health.
