Student Midwife

I am a wife and mother of three kids; Talon, Elliana and Emelia. I have been intrigued with pregnancyjen since I was a child. As I have grown older and learned more, my interest has only increased. After the first birth I witnessed 20 years ago, I remember thinking that this is the only job I could do every day and never tire of it! Although I am a new student with Cascade Midwives, I have known them for quite a while, as they were my midwives with my youngest two children. It’s so amazing to help families welcome their new additions in the same place where my children were born!

I have been working in the medical field for over 15 years as a medical assistant, phlebotomist and transfusion support technician. After my daughter, Elliana, was born in 2009, I took the birth doula training as a stepping stone towards midwifery school. Once my children were all in school I decided it was time for me to go back to school too. I was accepted into the midwifery program in Fall of 2015 at the Midwifery College of Utah and expect to graduate in the spring of 2019.
