I'm so glad you're here!
Hello and congratulations on your growing family! I am a mom to three amazing children – Malone, Beau & Jocelyn (twins!), and wife to a sweet “Kentucky Boy”. Born and raised in Michigan, I am a graduate of the University of Iowa and Indiana University, and serve as Director of a local non-profit, The Maternal Wellness Program. I'm proud and excitied to say that in I've been voted a Top Provider in GRKids Best Of GR 2019 - 2021!
My introduction to motherhood was challenging. I struggled with infertility, postpartum depression/anxiety and a difficult first birth. All these moments in my life set me on my path and passion for birth & postpartum support, and maternal mental health. Certified as a DONA birth and postpartum doula, as well as a certified advanced trained doula in VBaC births, my goal is to educate, nurture, support and empower every woman and their support partner through their pregnancy, labor and postpartum. I incorporate SpinningBabies methods into my work and provide gentle, encouraging and continuous birth support that is unique to each client’s hopes and wants towards a healthy & satisfying birth experience.
In my free moments, I enjoy spending time with my family, my daily devotions, a good cup of coffee, TaCoS (yum!), the sound of wind-chimes, Lake-life, music, traveling, Harry Potter, Iowa Hawkeyes and Fall weather!
I am proud to certified in, support and/or be actively involved in several local and national agencies, organizations and nonprofits that support our birth & motherhood community, families, and the well-being of others.
