Adriana Matos-Stiles. CNM.
Adriana moved to Knoxville when she was offered a job at Lisa Ross Birth and Women’s Center in March
of 2016– it was a perfect fit. She had previously worked as a homebirth provider in the Chicago area, which is where she was born and raised. She received her undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University and majored in cultural anthropology and minored in international development. Adriana got her master of science in nursing and registered nurse training at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She was drawn to the birth community and wanted to be a part of it, and has even experienced two amazing homebirths. Moving to a birth center was exciting for her, as she said: “Out-of-hospital birth is so magical, and a birth center is a nice in-between the hospital and home.” The more intimate birth center environment allows her to get to know the patients and be a part of a special community. Adriana has a 3 year old and 1 year old. When she’s not helping mothers and babies, she likes to run, spend time outdoors, and loves to cook and knit.
