Midwifery Institute of Philadelphia University alumna
Liane began the journey to becoming a midwife in Canada, where she obtained her
diploma in nursing in 1987. After many years of travelling with her military family,
she latched onto an opportunity to train to become a midwife in the UK, completing
the program in 2001. Upon return to the U.S.A, she became the first APO FEM (Advanced
Placement Option/Foreign Educated Midwife) to enroll in the Institute of Midwifery's
pilot program and in March of 2007 returned to become a tutor with the Institute.
Liane currently works in a full-scope, collaborative OB/GYN/midwifery practice in
Austin, Texas providing care to women & families. It is the first venture of its
kind in central Texas and provides an additional service to the greater Austin area.
Liane has two teenage sons, two middle-aged dogs and a neurotic cat, to keep things
interesting. She finds great joy in knowing that she is doing what she was put on
the earth to do!
