“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”

—Christopher Robin (A.A. Milne)

Bringing a baby into this world is both precious and powerful.  A midwife enters a woman’s life when she is undeniably vulnerable and, simultaneously, incredibly strong.  I love serving women in that time.  The joy and sense of wonder as a family welcomes their baby into the world is miraculous!

 The Lord has given me 4 beautiful children, all born at home with midwives.  With my own pregnancies and births, I learned the value of excellent midwifery care and strive to provide that level of care to my clients.  I feel incredibly privileged to be allowed to watch over such a sacred moment.

It is my role to monitor the progress and health of your pregnancy and birth as well as support, counsel, educate, and partner with you as you care for yourself and baby.  My focus will be on prevention rather than intervention.  It is also of utmost importance for you and your family to take responsibility for your health as well as your baby’s.

In 2007, I attended my first birth as a Midwifery Apprentice. In 2011, I became a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) through the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) and a Licensed Midwife (LM) with the State of Texas. Prior to realizing my calling to midwifery, I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of North Texas and spent 5 joyful years teaching Junior High students with learning differences.

I would consider it a blessing to participate in your journey to the birth of your baby!
