Midwifery has been a passion and goal of mine since I had the benefit of receiving midwifery care with my second and third babies. I knew that midwifery was an all or nothing commitment, so my journey to where I am today was a long and scenic road of learning as I raised my babies.
I am married and have three children that keep me entertained most days and definitely on my toes! I have lived in the Red Deer area for most of my life, and currently live on a hobby farm with my family 20 minutes east of Red Deer. The first baby step in my journey towards midwifery began after completing my doula training in 2000. I had already given birth to my first son, and knew that there had to be a better way than the medical procedure that had I had just experienced. My journey was slow and tentative, but the birth of my second son at home in the water healed me and completed me in ways I could never have thought possible. My life was forever changed with the knowledge that I could question, and ultimately make choices that were best for my family and I. My passion for caring for women, and ultimately midwifery took over and I spent the next 11 years planning for the day that I could pursue midwifery education.
