I come to New Birth Company from Northwest Wisconsin. I’m excited to be in the Kansas City area and I’m thrilled to be joining the team at New Birth Company. I’ve been a nurse since 2012 and spent my time working in medical surgical, labor and delivery, and OB/GYN triage. I received my MSN in nurse midwifery from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN where I had the opportunity to experience a wide variety of clinical settings from major academic practices to birth center and home birth. I’ve always been drawn to out of hospital birth since my mom had homebirths and my clinical experiences further cemented my commitment to providing this option to women and their families. I thoroughly enjoy supporting women and their families to achieve their goals as they navigate the process of pregnancy and birth. Becoming a parent is life-changing and it is my privilege to be present during that time. When I’m not catching babies or in the clinic, I enjoy reading, scrapbooking, and cooking.
