I’ve been a wife for 21 years and am a mama to 4 kiddos…Gracie (17), Karys (15), Addy (13) and Toby (11) and of course I can’t forget my dog mom duties to our sweet golden doodles! I’m an enneagram 8 (if you don’t know yours…I highly recommend getting curious!), a daily disciple, and immensely passionate individual. When I’m not helping deliver babies or hugging my own, I love traveling, reading a good book, hiking and being in nature. I breathe easier in the mountains or by the ocean.
I am a protector; peace seeker; and nurturer by nature. Choosing to become a midwife has truly changed the way I felt about work. I now get to help other women feel empowered as they bring their babies into this world and care and provide for their families. My life goal is to have those who come into my presence and feel seen, known, loved and have a strong desire to know Jesus more.
I graduated from Lennox High School in 1999-yup “in the 1900s” as the kids tell me. From there, I went on to graduate from Azusa Pacific University with a degree in Molecular Biology. After spending some time at home with the kiddos, and teaching at a local college, I returned to NCC and completed their Associates of nursing degree in 2011. I practiced nursing in California, Iowa and eventually Haiti where our family lived and served for 2 ½ years. During that time, I realized that if you could keep mamas healthy and alive, families survived and even THRIVED! Sarah and I decided to go back to midwifery school and graduated from Frontier Nursing University with our Certified Nurse Midwife degrees in 2015. What a gift it has been to be on this journey together! We cannot wait to come alongside you in your care. It truly is our JOY and privilege.
