I originally earned a bachelor's degree in English Literature before discovering my passion for birth and women's health. I completed training as a doula at Birthingway College of Midwifery and was present at several births before becoming a midwife. I returned to school and studied to be a Certified Nurse Midwife at Oregon Health & Science University. Since 2005 I have worked at a variety of practices in Portland, Oregon, and was pleased to find my "home" at Kaiser Permanente in 2013. I spend most of my time in the hospital but work in the clinic as needed. I provide preventive health care for women from puberty through menopause and beyond.
As a midwife I aim to help families achieve their desired birth experience. My job is to keep everyone safe, healthy, and informed during the labor process. I feel lucky to be part of Kaiser Permanente's strong birth team. Nurses, midwives, anesthetists (if needed), and doctors are always available to ensure our patients' comfort and safety. I look forward to meeting your family at Westside or Sunnyside!
My husband and I are avid chicken keepers and have an enormous vegetable garden and many pets to keep our two children and us busy. I enjoy pottery making and try to exercise regularly.
