I began my journey into midwifery when I became a labor doula in 2008. Not long after beginning this journey I realized my heart was pulling me towards becoming a midwife. At that time I lived in Colorado and because training opportunities were limited, I moved to Texas to begin the clinical part of my training in 2010.
I worked at Family Birth Center in New Braunfels, Texas, from 2010-2012 where I completed both my academic and clinical training. In February 2013 I took the National Association of Registered Midwives board exam and licensed as a Colorado registered midwife. My first practice was based out of Arvada, Colorado, where I supported mothers and delivered babies for 5 years all up and down the front range.
In 2017 my husband made a career changed that moved us to Kansas, and I opened a home birth practice serving the women of Wichita as they seek to birth their babies at home. I love supporting the women and families of this area and feel overwhelmingly blessed to walk this precious journey with so many beautiful mothers and babies.
in 2019, in a move toward sustainability, I joined my practice with Kyle Parish to create the new Born Midwifery. We've dreamed up a mission to help change the birth scene in Wichita, one mother and baby at a time. We share our clients and on-call schedule and a passion to serve a diverse clientele with quality prenatal, birth, and well-woman care. We are so excited to work with you on this journey to welcome your baby.
On a more private note…I am married to an incredible man who is a powerful force behind my success. Being on-call 24/7 with four children has its difficulties, and without his support, encouragement, and understanding being a midwife would be quite impossible! I am blessed with four beautiful children who I have birthed naturally: Hazel (6) and Knox (4), Zoë (2) and Saxon (03/2020). Being their mother has expanded my heart and deepened my passion for life in a way I never knew possible. I am so very grateful for my precious family and for the opportunity to extend this love and grace to other families all over Colorado and Kansas.
