Certified Professional Midwife
In 2012, I again wanted something more, and I began my journey into midwifery. I completed coursework with Midwife To Be, and an apprenticeship with the late Rebekah Knapp.
In 2015, I started my own practice. I love serving women on this most vulnerable and empowering journey into motherhood. I continue to be astounded at the amazing love and courage it takes to bring a baby into the world. I am honored to be a guide and a protector of this rite of passage.
I was born and raised in the beautiful north woods of Minnesota. I am a wife, a mother, and grandmother. My husband is my biggest supporter and we have been married more than 30 years. I homeschooled my 4 amazing children, and am loving being a grandmother. When I am not engrossed in birth work and catching babies, I enjoy spending time with my family, kayaking & boating, and enjoying beautiful Minnesota.
I am always seeking to learn more about pregnancy, birth, and babies. I am a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) through the North American Registry of Midwives and licensed by the State of Minnesota. I have completed Basic Disaster Birth Support Training, and maintain NRP and CPR certifications.
My little family moved up north at the end of 2019. I've been working in birth since 2011 growing in my experience and offerings as the community needed me. I started with teaching childbirth ed, offering doula support, lactation support, craniosacral therapy, placenta encapsulation and now supporting Molly as her assistant and apprenticing with her.
In the summer, when I don't have my nose in a textbook, you'll find me on a lake or in my garden. One of my FAVORITE winter pass times is knitting in my corner with a hot cup of tea.
