Certified Nurse Mid-wife

Gene has been caring for women since 2004 when she started as a labor and delivery nurse. She then graduated from MUSC’s Certified Nurse Midwifery program with a Masters in nursing in 2007. Since graduating, she has been serving her patients as a certified Nurse Midwife, caring for women through pregnancy, labor, and delivery, as well as meeting their gynecological needs. Through her years of experience, she has learned that getting to know her patients on a personal level is the key to providing personal care that meets each patient’s individual needs. Gene has a special interest in adolescent care, preventative medicine, contraception, and management of menopausal symptoms via bioidentical hormone optimization.

Gene grew up in Shelby, N.C. She earned her undergraduate degree from Furman University where she played Division I collegiate tennis. She lives in Mt. Pleasant with her husband (and high school sweetheart), Rusty. They have three children, Holman (7), Geni (5), and Nora (2). Outside of her work, gene enjoys spending time with her family, which involves lots of sports practice, games, church and school activities, biking, reading, and playing at the beach. She is an avid runner and loves the outdoors.

Dr. Rhett recruited Gene to come work for him in 2014, and RWC feels privileged to have her as part of their team.
