Student Representative

Emily Bavasi, RN (term: 2021-2022) is entering into her third year as a DNP student and will be starting clinicals with the Ballard Midwives in June.  This is her first clinical experience as a CNM student. She graduated from nursing school in 2012 and have worked at Providence in Everett since then.  She's making a big professional turn as she enters into midwifery as most of her time up until now has been spent working as an Emergency Department nurse.  Many of her colleagues in the ED may be spotted running the other direction when a laboring person rolls in, but reproductive and sexual health patients have always been her absolute favorite people to care for!  She live in Greenwood with my husband and daughter, Evie.  She was born last August; one of the last kiddos to be born at the Swedish Ballard campus!  Emily is thrilled to be expanding her professional role as a midwife in this community by becoming a student representative for the WA affiliate.
