Laci Spengler is a Certified Nurse Midwife originally from Dallas, Texas. Laci’s heart to care for people began as a young child after going on her first mission trip to Honduras. Since then, international travel and caring for vulnerable populations have been her biggest passions. This led her to pursue a nursing degree, and she became a registered nurse in 2013. Laci began her nursing journey in Malawi, Africa where she worked as the director of an HIV program for women and children and volunteered at a local clinic and orphanage. While living in Malawi, Laci saw a desperate need in the community, so she returned to the states to further her education and become a midwife. Over the next few years, she acquired additional experience by working as a sonographer at a pregnancy center, becoming a birth assistant at a birthing center, and maintaining her director role at the same nonprofit organization she worked for in Africa. She received her Master of Science in Nursing degree from Frontier Nursing University and became licensed as a Certified Nurse Midwife in 2019.
Laci’s approach as a midwife comes from her core belief that all people should be treated with kindness and compassion, and her goal is to empower women and families by showing them their intrinsic worth through the love of Jesus. She feels childbirth is an incredible way for women to encounter God and discover the depths of their inner strength, and she feels honored by the ability to walk with women throughout their pregnancies and to witness the miracle of new life so often.
In addition to being a midwife, Laci enjoys running, cooking, and spending time with friends. Laci is married to her best friend, John, and they enjoy exploring the outdoors, hanging out with their two cats, leading worship, and traveling together every chance they get.
