marjani_jean_phillipe_cnmMarjani was born and raised in New York and is of Afro-Caribbean ancestry. Marjani began her journey into midwifery with the birth of her own child. Feeling empowered by her own birthing experience and wanting to make a difference for other women, she decided to pursue her dream of becoming a midwife.

Prior to receiving her masters of science in Nurse-Midwifery from Frontier Nursing University, Marjani worked as a labor and delivery nurse for several years. She has also had the pleasure of attending births at the Brooklyn Birthing Center, the only freestanding birth center in New York. Marjani is a member of the American College of Nurse Midwives Georgia affiliate and was also inducted into Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing. Her passion is education and empowerment of underserved women and preserving normal physiologic childbirth.

Marjani is enjoying the warmth and hospitality of the South. During her free time she enjoys reading, cooking, traveling, and spending time with her family. Marjani feels privileged to support women during one of the most transformative times of their lives, and is grateful to practice in a setting that supports the midwifery model of care.
