More About Me
I spent the first 18 years of my life in a small town in Alberta not far from Edmonton. Since 2007 I have called Quebec home. I moved here here after graduating from university and spending a year teaching English in China. My three children were born here and it is because of them and my various birth experiences (positive and negative) and that I became more interested in working with birth.
I love my community and am specifically passionate about new moms. A lot of my volunteer work is focused here. I feel deeply called to support, love and care for women (and their families) as they journey through pregnancy, birth and new motherhood. I trained to become a doula after the birth of my third child and found it is an amazing opportunity for me to combine my passion for families and my love of biology and birth.
Becoming a parent is a challenge and it can feel lonely so much of the time. I hope I can be there to make the ride smoother, clearer and more graceful.
