When I graduated college as a psychology major, I was planning on a career working with domestic violence survivors. But when I discovered midwifery I knew it was the career for me. I was drawn to the holistic nature of midwifery, placing equal importance on spiritual, emotional, and physical health. I first had the opportunity to observe midwives in practice in the Middle East, Europe, and inner city Boston. I loved how the midwives I met gave care to women, their families, and the community with respect and equity. Midwifery also spoke to my commitment towards social justice.
In the years that I've been a practicing midwife, I have worked primarily in hospitals and clinics in Boston, New York City, and Maine, and have attended over 1,000 births. I have also worked as a volunteer midwife in Guatemala, Haiti, and Mississippi. I am excited to now have the opportunity to focus on well-body care and sexual health. The longer I work in this field, the more I know there is nothing else I would rather be doing.

Many years ago when I started coming to the Western foothills of Maine, I immediately knew I wanted to make Maine my permanent home. We moved up part time, but after a little more time I was able to convince my family that Maine is the place to be! We are happy to be here. Besides having the opportunity to do this work, I feel privileged to have so much natural beauty at my fingertips. I take full advantage of many outdoor activities: hiking, swimming, snowshoeing to name a few, as well as making sure that I find the time to share all this with my friends and family.
