My journey to midwifery began when I became a birth doula for a friend. She had an amazing birth and I realized I wanted to be involved in caring for women. I graduated from the Seattle Midwifery School in 2005. My philosophy is that pregnancy and childbirth are powerful life-changing events. I am dedicated to building respectful relationships with my clients and strive for care that attends to the body, mind, and spirit. It is my goal to provide care that is safe and satisfying for all involved. I am a mother to 2 beautiful boys and still exploring our area. I am excited to be part of the ENCOMPASS team to continue helping families in welcoming their children into the world.
