I discovered my passion for women's health within my sculptural work and in my anthropological studies. As I found myself on the road to graduate school to study global midwifery culture, it occurred to me that I would rather become a midwife than study them. I haven't looked back since.
In the fall of 2000, I became a doula and then in 2004, a labor/delivery/postpartum nurse. I worked as a nurse for over a decade and was able to weave doula and nursing philosophies. As a midwife, I deeply value the journey patients and their families experience in birth, change, and sometimes in loss. In this season of my career, I strive to hold the time and space I share with patients and their families as sacred and see each interaction as an opportunity to learn, connect, and grow through the lifespan.
I am mother to two children that make my heart bloom and continue to inspire me every day.
