In addition to being a midwife and nutritionist, I am also a Holistic Care Provider®, a TRE® (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises) provider, and have training and a personal interest in movement therapies for pelvic floor and diastitis recti care, including Mamalates, Nutritious Movement, and NeuroFascial Integration. Born and raised in Portland Oregon, I spend my free moments on nature outings with my husband and two daughters, exploring new foods, playing music, moving and finding quiet moments as a parent to breathe.


It is my passion to help soften life's challenges, empower families to find their path to nourishment, and support parents to live these treasured years with tools for self care and lasting health.
