After my youngest became more independent, I knew it was time to start preparing for the next stage of my life. I had a strong desire to serve women and to offer services that would support her experience in pregnancy and birth. It was a natural transition to care for women as they traveled their own path of bringing their children into the world.

I began working with expecting families in 1998 as a birth doula, childbirth educator and licensed massage therapist, specializing in maternal and newborn care. In January of 2004 I began my midwifery apprenticeship training and had the amazing opportunity of “catching” first baby!  Upon completion of my educational and clinical training I sat for my national exam, and in February of 2006 received my Certified Professional Midwife certificate.  In June of that same year, received my state licensure as a Licensed Midwife in Texas. From massage therapy to childbirth educator to doula and finally to midwifery – each journey added to the skills and information I could share with mothers and their families; to benefit them as they walked their own path through pregnancy and birth.

Over these years I have attended over 750 births – each being unique and amazing. My philosophy is to return honor, respect and empowerment back to where it has always belonged – to the mother!

Through my journey as a midwife, I knew there needed to be a place for women and their families to have care on their terms – and thus Birth Center Stone Oak was born.  I am honored to be a part of the care families are offered by midwives at Birth Center Stone Oak. It is always a miracle to watch as a woman and her family work together to bring a new life into the world. Their love, commitment and amazing power can be felt at each birth.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) in May of 2014 in Community Health & Preventative Services. After graduating from UTSA, I traveled for eight months as a missionary volunteer with Adventure in Missions’ World Race program. I worked in countries such Asia, Southern Africa and Eastern Europe, and was able to see birth from a different perspective – one that viewed birth as a natural and empowering process in a woman’s life. Thus, was born my passion for women’s health and maternity services!

Upon returning to the United States, I began researching ways to work in women’s health and maternity. As a truly divine orchestration, Birth Center Stone Oak offered me the opportunity to shadow and volunteer. During my year as a volunteer, I built relationships with mothers and families during prenatal and postpartum appointments and was even able to attend several births. This was the opportunity I needed to solidify my passion for helping grow mother’s and families, so I decided to pursue a degree in nursing in hopes of eventually becoming a Certified Nurse Midwife.

After graduating from an Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Emory University in August of 2017, I returned to my home at Birth Center Stone Oak to be a postpartum nurse and birth assistant. My goal is to continue growing relationships with mothers and families while also growing my skills as a nurse specializing in maternal-child health.
