Before finding her way to midwifery, Chidera obtained her undergraduate degree in Sports Medicine with a concentration in Chemistry at Howard University in Washington, DC. Her love for all things midwifery and women’s health began after a life-changing mission trip to Ghana, West Africa in college. Although the trip was meant to bless and help others, Chidera also gained a sense of self and purpose.
