Evidence Based Birth® Instructor
I am passionate about supporting families as they do the work to achieve healthy, positive birth experiences. Pregnancy and childbirth are normal, natural processes, and I trust the intuitive wisdom and strength of the birthing person. I believe families do best when they are informed, supported, and empowered as they navigate pregnancy, childbirth, and early parenthood.
I have experienced first-hand the transformative power of the birth process. Today, I am Mom to a happy, curious three-year-old who is a constant reminder of the beautiful simplicity in this world. My teammate-for-life, my husband, is the steady calm upon which our family floats. In addition to fostering community and connection with expecting families and fellow birth professionals, I enjoy spontaneous outdoor adventures, connecting with nature, cooking, spending time with my family and friends, movement meditation, and crafting and using natural remedies to maintain optimal health. Wellness starts from within, and I believe in taking care of myself so that I can be there for my family and the families I serve.
It would be a privilege and an honor to walk beside you as you welcome your littlest addition.
I hope to meet you soon!
