Tina decided to go into nursing with the end goal of becoming a nurse midwife. She grew up watching her mother help mothers and their children as a social worker and knew that she wanted to help mothers and children as well. She graduated Charity Nursing School in New Orleans with her Associate’s degree in nursing and then went on to get her Bachelor’s in nursing at the University of South Alabama and her Master’s in nurse- midwifery at Frontier Nursing University. She is passionate about informed consent and shared decision-making when caring for women during pregnancy and birth. Tina’s mission in life is to form lasting relationships with families and advocate for mothers who want to have a natural birth free of fear and doubt. In her free time, she loves spending time with her husband and two teenagers at Disney World and loves to pass down mommy wisdom to young, new moms.

Kerry first fell in love with the idea of nurse-midwifery when, in high school, she worked with the elderly and discovered that the women always remembered their birth experiences even when they could not recall their last meal. She joined the U.S. Marine Corps right after high school in order to be able to pursue her nursing dream. She worked as a nurse assistant while getting her Associate’s in nursing, then went on to get her Bachelor’s in nursing at the University of Illinois and her Master’s in nurse-midwifery at Frontier Nursing University. Kerry is passionate about teaching her clients everything they want to know about pregnancy and birth. She recognizes that the ideal birth experience is different for every woman and desires to support each lady in the way they need. Having five children of her own, she recognizes the importance of family involvement in pregnancy and birth and loves encouraging dads to catch their own babies!
Together, in 2016, Tina and Kerry founded Stand & Deliver! to provide midwifery and well-woman care to teens and women in the Pensacola and Northwest Florida area.
