In 1998, as a young girl of 18, I eagerly submitted my application to the Mercy in Action College of Midwifery. This was before the days of Google, when finding a midwifery school was not as simple as a quick keyword search on the internet.
Kristen Benoit is the Admissions Director for Mercy in Action College of Midwifery and recently helped them gain MEAC accreditation. In almost 20 years as a student and later staff of Mercy in Action, she earned a CPM; midwifery licenses in New Mexico, Vermont and New Hampshire; a Bachelor of Science in Midwifery; and she is beginning a Masters in Intercultural Leadership in the fall. She is married to Matt Benoit and has four children, all born at home with other Mercy in Action graduates in attendance.
