I came to the birth world after having experience in a few other fields. I have an art undergrad and a master’s in education. I have been a graphic designer, and have taught everything from special ed to kindergarten for about 10 years.

I am from Chicago, but fell in love with Nashville as I fell in love with my husband. We live on the East side of town with our two kids, two dogs and cat. We are also foster care parents, so we generally have at least one extra nugget around our house.

When I got pregnant with my first I did a deep dive into learning everything I could about birth, and I really have never stopped. After having my second, I knew I was done birthing babies, but I wasn’t done with birth.

I believe that all women deserve to be heard and empowered during their labor and birth. I work hard to create a peaceful open environment, in which you can focus on your labor and birth. I will hold and create space when necessary for you to breathe and make choices throughout your birth.
