Kristen Green, CNM, WHNP-BC (pronouns: she/her) is a Certified Nurse Midwife with The George Washington University Hospital MFA.
Kristen completed her undergraduate degree in Social and Cultural Analysis & Public Health and Policy at New York University (NYU). During her time at NYU, she studied abroad for a semester in Ghana where she realized her passion for global health. She then went on to complete her nursing and midwifery training at Yale School of Nursing and graduated in 2016.
For her last rotation in midwifery school, she trained at an Indian Health Service (IHS) hospital in Chinle, AZ, a town on the Navajo Nation. Post-graduation, she ended up working there full-time for four and a half years and loved supporting her clients and families through many life events and transitions. In addition to providing midwifery services, she was also part of the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) at Chinle Hospital and is extremely passionate about incorporating trauma-informed care into all her patient encounters. She has also taught group childbirth classes and worked in high school-based teen clinics. Kristen has seen how transformative patient-centered midwifery care can be for her clients and their families and loves providing individualized, holistic care.
When not caring for patients, she is usually off hiking, running, traveling, or sitting down with a good book.
