I am very calm and a great communicator. Every woman has her own idea of what would make an ideal birth and it is my honor to help facilitate that wish.

Personal
Along the way through life, I have always found ways to be involved with birth and children. In addition to the volunteer experience listed above, I was a Cub Scout den mother for 4 years as well as a co-coach, with my husband, for YMCA basketball for 5 years. I have been married for 34 years; have two wonderful sons and an amazing daughter-in-law. I have been doing yoga for 14 years and I’m an avid participant in downhill skiing and white water rafting (not at the same time).
