The childbearing year and beyond has always held a special place in my heart from a young age. I was called to enter the profession of midwifery at 19 after the birth of my son. Somehow, someway I learned about water birth, doulas, breastfeeding, and everything in between and knew it was going to be apart of my future. Fast forward 13 years , two more children, and a full career in nursing I made my way back to midwifery and began my education and training towards becoming a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM).
I am a CPM through The North American Registry of Midwives having earned my certification and Bridge Certificate in January of 2019. I am certified as a Healthcare Provider BLS/ CPR, Intermediate Fetal Monitoring, Neonatal Resuscitation, Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics as well as an Instructor for the course, STABLE, and became a Certified Breastfeeding Educator in 2016. I attend conferences frequently throughout the year as a passionate, lifelong learner. I have been a nurse in three area hospital systems in Labor and Delivery which translates to strong community partnerships and relationships with many providers throughout the city. Additionally, my time as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner in two area hospitals has resulted in trauma informed care as a care provider.
When I'm not working, learning, and being a mom of 3, I enjoy knitting, reading, getting lost on Pinterest, getting out in nature, traveling, and watching Netflix and Amazon Prime. I am the kind of person that will laugh with you, cry with you, and call ya out from a place of love always, to do better, be better, and to keep on keeping on! I truly see beauty in the everyday experiences and in each person and family I have the honor of supporting. I am interested in creating human connections with folks as a Midwife over professional ones. Can't wait to meet you!
