Grant has been a certified nurse midwife since 1983. She graduated from the University of Arizona midwifery program and returned to Grand Junction to open her practice. Grant practices with the midwives of Mesa Midwives and the OB/GYNs of Women’s Health Care of Western Colorado.

Most of Grant’s 5800 births have been at St Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction. For many years, clients from Telluride traveled to Grand Junction for their prenatal care. Ten years ago she offered a clinic, once a month in Telluride, to accommodate clients and their families. Grant is now available for appointments at the Telluride Medical Center.

As a nationally certified Physician’s Assistant, Tealdi specializes in pediatrics, orthopedics, emergency medicine, urgent care and preventative medicine for all ages. She has been practicing primary care medicine in Western Colorado since 2000.  For the past 5 years Tealdi has worked in the emergency department at Community Hospital in Grand Junction.
