Our team


I felt my first calling to birth work during a birth class while pregnant with my first child. I was completely in awe of the beauty and strength of reproduction, pregnancy, and labor, as well as the community borne from it. Then after the empowering births of my two children I knew birth work was the space of which I belonged.

I bring a wealth of knowledge to help families with the new transition of postpartum life, both from working with children and families for 10+ years and from my professional culinary background. My joy is in creating a safe space for families to grow, advocating for them and providing them with the most intentional and compassionate evidence-based care. My purpose is to support and encourage each family’s intuition, to provide calming reassurance in their power, and to help them own their own experience.

I’m here to create and nurture my community, to live a life of continued education and fight for justice within the birth world.

I can’t wait to help you on your journey in whatever form it takes.
