Originally from Washington D.C, I have been living in the western US since I was eighteen. My interest in traditional healers and community herbalism first brought me to New Mexico where I began my midwifery career as a doula. After earning my bachelor’s degree in Humanities with a women’s reproductive health concentration I graduated from Seattle Midwifery School’s three-year midwifery program (Now at Bastyr University) in 2004. I have been a Licensed Midwife (LM) and Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) since 2006.
Working alongside Licensed Midwives and Nurse-Midwives in both homebirth practices and bustling birth centers over the last ten years has afforded me a huge spectrum of experiences from which I am growing my own vision for the midwifery care I contribute to my community here in the Wood River Valley. I have a small homebirth practice in Hailey, Idaho where the Sagebrush Steppe meets the Central Idaho Wilderness.
I am honored to serve the women and families of this beautiful valley and I am proud to be one of 36 Licensed Midwives in the state of Idaho. I am a member of the Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA), the National Association of Certified Professional Midwives (NACPM), and the Idaho Midwifery Council (IMC).
