My journey to midwifery began while I was in nursing school at the University of Kansas. I learned about the role of nurse-midwives in my studies and saw first hand that maternity care really needed improvement. While the path forward didn’t look easy, I knew I was being called to become a midwife. I finished nursing school in 2014 and worked as a cardiac/critical care nurse until 2018. I began my midwifery training in 2015 at Thomas Jefferson University (formerly Philadelphia University). While in midwifery school, I gave birth to our son Cadel in 2015 and our son Henry in 2019 at a freestanding birth center. I graduated with my masters in midwifery and became certified as a nurse-midwife in 2019. I worked as a midwife for a period of time at Immanuel Birth Co. in Topeka before joining Sacred Song Homebirth.

I have been married to my husband, Dan, since 2012 and together we have two little boys, a little girl, and an American Eskimo dog, Cub. We love the outdoors, traveling, listening to music, entertaining in our home, and spending time with friends and family.

I am thrilled and honored to be part of the Sacred Song team and to serve women and families in the Kansas City area.
