Education and Training
I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Sociology and Women's and Gender Studies from Northern Arizona University in 2010 and shortly after, realized that I wanted to become a midwfe. I soon met with my future preceptor, Maryn Green, and started my traditional home birth apprenticeship. She was my primary midwifery mentor for five years, during which time I also worked with 5 other midwives (many more if you count all the amazing mentors and teachers!). In February and March 2016, I apprenticed as a primary midwife at Better Birth, a high volume birth center in Utah. Over the course of 5 years I did intensive self study and guided study with my preceptor and completed coursework with Ancient Art Midwifery Institute. I am certified in CPR and Neonatal Resuscitation, and currently teach student midwives through the Indie Birth Midwifery School which keeps me always learning and growing as a midwife. I officially opened my own home birth practice at the beginning of 2017 and have had a steady and growing stream of clients ever since.
