mother, Midwife, bodyworker, EDUCATOR

It is one of my greatest pleasures to journey with women and their families as they grow, birth, and raise their babies. 

I have lived and breathed birthwork since my teenage years when I attended my first birth fresh out of high school. Diving into midwifery a few years later, then prenatal bodywork and herbal medicine more recently has felt like a grand alignment in how I want to provide holistic care.  

Along with my 10+ years in birth work and midwifery, I have journeyed the intensity of birth and the transformation of motherhood twice. Both of my births nurtured faith, intuition and self-responsibility; values that I encourage in my clients as well. 

I strive to bring integrity, presence and truth into my work and relationships.

This is the part where I say, ‘when I’m not working, I’m doing all these other interesting hobbies’. Truth is that most of my extra time outside of home life and socializing is spent deepening and widening my craft through study or mentorship and testing my herbal medicine creations on my family! 

I currently serve families in Powell River, BC and virtually world-wide.
