Midwifery first touched my heart when I was twenty, a young adult browsing the public library shelves. A book with a beautiful cover and intriguing title caught my eye. It was a book about natural birth and midwifery. With each page I turned I became more enamored as I soaked up the beauty and power of birth… I was forever changed!
In the time since then I have immersed myself in all things birth. I trained and worked as a doula, midwife's assistant, and finally as a homebirth midwife. I have had the opportunity over the last 10 years to train and work in 6 different midwifery practices with 11 amazing midwives.
I am super happy to be a Certified Professional Midwife and have my own practice, working in Southeast Ohio serving birthing families! Based out of Athens, I also serve Lancaster, Logan, Circleville, Chillicothe, Jackson, Gallipolis, Marietta, Parkersburg and more. Typically anywhere within roughly a 60 mile radius from Athens Ohio.
I keep busy raising my three kids with my husband, working on our 91 acre farm in Athens County, exploring the woods, learning fiddle, chasing cows, and of course going to births. I look forward to meeting you!
