I am a Mom of two wonderful, spunky boys and a wife to my hardworking, supportive husband. We have a dog named Mocha and a cat named Ms. Kitty. We are a  homeschooling family,  enjoy the outdoors and love being around people.

I have supported my friends and family through pregnancy, labor and postpartum. They tend to come to me for questions and support. I have a passion for learning and educating and encouraging them to make informed decisions that are right for them. I believe every woman should be comfortable and confident with the choices she made and her own intuitions. I have a great interest with the entire process of pregnancy and labor it is a powerful experience that is often misunderstood and misrepresented.
