Meet our Staff
Melissa Barroso, Certified Medical Assistant: (Spanish speaking)
I love my job as a Medical Assistant, it’s a great satisfaction to work with people in a meaningful way and knowing you are making a positive impact in their life. OB/GYN has given me the experience of my life. It is a privilege to follow your pregnancy, making sure you and the baby are healthy and happy during this special moment of your life. Women have unique health conditions, empowering women to be healthy and beautiful is the most rewarding feeling. Here’s to strong women, may we know them, may we be with them, may we raise them.
I love my job. It doesn’t feel like a job it feels like my hobby. Making a difference in people’s lives is an amazing feeling. I am Certified in the Fitness and Nutrition industry and love helping others with their wellness goals. Feeling your optimal best is “priceless”. Love my family of seven children, a hubby, a dog, and my garden.
Giving birth is a miraculous event in a women’s life, and my goal as a midwife is to help women have a wonderful, safe, labor experience in the new Birkeland Maternity Center, St. Alphonsus Medical Center, Nampa. As a Certified Nurse Midwife, I help women individualize their birth experience especially if they want a natural childbirth. I focus on education, for a healthy mom and baby.
I have lived in Idaho since 2015 and originally am from the east coast. I have always been interested in the medical field and helping others. Having a cardiology background I have found there is a lot to learn within the OBGYN realm and many different kinds of rewards associated with it. One definite plus is getting to see & hold the precious babies that our providers deliver on a regular basis. Although I miss the east coast, I do enjoy Idaho and the outdoor lifestyle it offers especially since you can watch the New England Patriots win from anywhere!
