Get to Know Me…

I was born and raised on the beaches of California and I now call Northern Virginia home.  I am a mother to 4 fun loving children who teach me daily about the important things in life.  I enjoy reading (one can never have too many books!), charming coffee shops, dark chocolate anything, gardening, and spending time with friends and family.

My Philosophy

There are as many ways to give birth as there are women in the world, and there is no one right way.  Whether you choose to have an epidural during your birth, or are planning an unmedicated all-natural labor, I am here for THAT kind of birth!

I will respect your family’s preferences, communication styles and coping techniques in order to support you and provide individualized care.  I want you to be able to look back on your baby’s birth-day as one of the best days in your life!
