Jessica Gefre, CNM
A Colorado native, Jessica began her career in nursing after graduating with her Associates of Nursing degree from Front Range Community College in 2003. Drawn to the care of laboring mothers from the very beginning, Jessica worked for 15 years as a Labor & Delivery Nurse in the Birthing Center at Poudre Valley Hospital, during which time she earned her Bachelor’s of Nursing degree from the University of Northern Colorado in 2013, and her Masters of Nursing degree as a Certified Nurse Midwife from Colorado University in 2018.
Jessica is truly passionate about women’s health and strives to create supportive and inclusive relationships with her patients, ultimately empowering them to take ownership of their health and healthcare. Jessica regards Midwifery as not only a profession, but as her true calling and life’s work. When not at work, Jessica enjoys spending time with her husband and watching her 4 daughters play volleyball and barrel race, as well as, fishing, kickboxing, and gardening.
Victoria K. Sundquist, CNM
Victoria is passionate about the Midwifery Model of Care and Shared Decision Making. While health care professionals have knowledge about processes, risks, and benefits, she recognizes that each patient is the expert in their own body and their experience, and it is vital that we listen to and hear them and their needs. With a background as a homebirth midwifery apprentice on the East Coast and in Alaska, and as an L&D nurse in Colorado at a community hospital and in an accredited out-of-hospital birth center, she hopes to empower her patients in the clinic and during the perinatal time to make the best choices for their unique situation. She is very passionate about mental health, having experienced significant postpartum depression decades ago when there were no readily available resources. Other passions include complementary and alternative medicine, lactation support, and trauma informed care.
After moving around Europe and all four sides of the United States both as the child of an opera singer and then as a military spouse, Victoria picked Colorado to be her home as a single mom of five in 2010. Now, she and her husband enjoy their blended horde of seven children and a slew of rescue animals including dogs, cats, and turtles. They enjoy gardening and making their yard pollinator and wildlife friendly, supporting their kids in theater productions and artistic endeavors, playing on the lake, cooking, traveling, and enjoying what the four seasons in Colorado have to offer in the great outdoors.
Victoria’s education includes pre-med at Northwestern University, an Accelerated Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing at Regis University, and a Master’s of Science in Nursing in Midwifery at Frontier Nursing University. She participates in the ACNM Task Force addressing Racism in Midwifery Education and in the southwestern division of the Midwives for Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) group.
Paige Boran, CNM
Paige was born and raised on the east coast of Florida, where she earned her undergraduate degree in nursing from the University of Central Florida. She originally planned on becoming a pediatric nurse, but she fell in love with labor and delivery during her schooling. She worked as a labor & delivery nurse and childbirth educator at a small community hospital in Florida for 4.5 years where she was able to provide intimate care to the diverse community during their pregnancy, birth, and postpartum periods. She decided to further her education to be able to form deeper connections with women throughout their life. She graduated from Frontier Nursing University in 2022 with a Master of Science in Nursing, Certified Nurse-Midwifery. She was able to complete clinicals at both hospital and birth center settings, which helped shape her work philosophy: “Birth is a natural process that occasionally needs medical intervention, not a medical intervention that occasionally occurs naturally.”
Paige is a strong advocate for patient-centered care and supports informed consent as much as she supports informed declination. She feels honored to share space with people during some of the most transformative periods of life and wants to provide women with the knowledge & tools they need to feel empowered in their bodies throughout all of life’s changes. While she feels most at peace in a birthing space, Paige is also passionate about hormone health, adolescent gynecology, and contraceptive options.
When not working, Paige loves being outdoors with her husband and dog. Since moving to Colorado, they have been enjoying having all four seasons and being close to mountains. You can find her hiking, paddleboarding, or reading on her days off. She and her husband love to travel and explore new places- they even eloped in New Zealand while living in a camper van for a few weeks.
