My midwifery journey began after I experienced the incredible care midwives provided during my third pregnancy. Although I was already two years into a nursing degree in a small town on Vancouver Island, I was determined to apply to UBC Midwifery in hopes of pursuing this calling and was fortunate to have my family’s unwavering support to follow my dreams.
During my 4 years in the midwifery program, I was privileged to meet and care for many diverse families. I feel very fortunate to have learned from some of the most dedicated, passionate and skilled midwives, obstetricians and numerous other practitioners working in the birthing community in the lower mainland during this time.
I am an easy going, loving and hard working midwife. I strive to provide safe, informed, evidence-based care that puts families in the ‘driver’s seat’ as the experts in their own decision-making. I believe the midwife-client relationship is so important to an empowering experience and my goal is to provide you safe, inclusive and personalized care that supports your journey through pregnancy birth and beyond!
