All women are sacred.
Each childbearing experience is unique.
We empower our self-healing through connecting with our intuition and instinct, and devotedly practicing Love in all ways.
It is our birthright to thrive with vibrant health and spiritual satisfaction throughout the childbearing years.
It is YOUR birthright to THRIVE
With VIBRANT health
And SPIRITUAL SATISFACTION
While making babies,
and living your family’s life.
I am dedicated to helping people experience conscious partnering, birth, & parenting.
My mission is to support birthing individuals & families in honoring the full childbirth spectrum, from conception through the full sacred postpartum window and inclusive of all pregnancy and birth outcomes.
I am devoted to rooting into Love and deep connection with Spirit. Centering in my heart, I aim to reside in unconditional love & acceptance, and in faith & deep trust.
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” — Rumi
I have been graced with healing, connection, and joy beyond my wildest dreams. I am blessed to be in union with a loving partner with whom I have co-created a beautiful family. The making, birthing, & nurturing of our three magical children graces my womb, body, and spirit with potent healing, as does the integral honoring of my own moon cycles.
Art is a continual thread running lovingly through my life, and my sweetest artistic passions are dancing, singing, writing, and painting. I find art in the way I live each day, in communication and connection, in attuning with Nature’s rhythms. I have a deep passion for community and am looking forward to serving as a birthkeeper for many, many years in my beloved Home.
I feel it is essential to shift away from divisiveness. It is time to see the Divine in each person, to celebrate the wisdom in each birth, to elevate every mother and birthing couple, to find our ways of living in harmony with Spirit, ourselves, one another, and the earth. The answer seems to always be…trust, and more trust.
Today I dance and swim in the bold and beautiful waters of living in Love, connected with the Sacred. This to me is the most political act and empowering life path I can do.

Work Experience + Affiliations
Since September 2019 I have been working with the Center for Sacred Window Studies, closely supporting Director Christine Eck. Beloved aspects of my work with CSWS include directing & serving as Editor for the Sacred Window Blog, advising the Work Study Scholarship Program, and intimately supporting development of the Postpartum Care Collective, a global community of caregivers, advocates, activists and parents. I have enjoyed creating organizational documents, serving in communications, and creating supportive content for programs such as the Sacred Window Internship Circle, where I also serve on the mentoring team.
I am a Sister of Motherheart. Motherheart is a safe, loving and sacred space for mothers throughout all phases of motherhood. A space where you can be who you truly are, and connect from your motherheart with other motherhearts. It’s a place where you can fully embrace all there is, create awareness to heal and grow, and start living from your MOTHERHEART.
I am honored to be a member of the Community Birth Directory with Virtual Birth Collective, an online community of passionate women, dedicated to sharing information and wisdom about how to envision an autonomous, empowering, and transformative birth experience for women and their families.
