With wide range interests in natural healing modalities, herbology and organic skincare, I find myself in a support role at Heritage and loving it! I have a background in women’s studies and health care studies; women’s health is my passion. I thrive in environments that encourage women’s strength and trust in their own bodies. Heritage does that and more. Thank you for allowing to be a part of your journey with motherhood.

I consider myself lucky to work in an environment where I'm able to support midwives in their field and help care for our mamas and their sweet babies everyday. After years of infertility my husband and I were thrilled to welcome our sweet girl Norah in June of 2012. Receiving care from the Heritage midwives during my pregnancy only made me more dedicated to providing this experience for all of the Valley's women. I always love chatting with our moms, in clinic and out, about cloth diapers, slings, and pregnancy.

As a young woman that has always been drawn to organizations and hobbies that inspire women’s strength and health, I believe Heritage has found a special place in my heart when it comes to encouraging women and mothers to draw on their own strengths to have the best birth experience they can have. After several years of commercial fishing on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula, competing in charity events such as the Tough Mudder for the Wounded Warrior Project, farming in our nation’s dairyland, and continuing education in nursing and biological sciences, I consider myself blessed and continue to be inspired by the strong and beautiful women and mothers here at Heritage everyday. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of such a wonderful team!
