In 2011, I moved from Kentucky to Everett, Washington to chase my midwifery dreams. I became interested in birth work after training as a massage therapist and birth doula. During this time I became inspired by the families working around me to create a better birth environment in a state where community birth is not yet the norm. Families had to strive for choice in their birth experiences and were barred from options such as home birth & birthing centers. I was outraged by this lack of choice and become inspired to get involved to provide every family with an experience that allows them to determine their care.

Since moving to the Evergreen State, I have graduated from a MEAC accredited school, MCU, and apprenticed with a high volume birth center. I have had the honor of attending over 400 births in hospitals, birth centers, and homes in Snohomish, Skagit, & King County. Midwifery care is so much more than routine. As a midwife, I strive to nurture thoughtful and respectful relationships with the families I serve. 

Outside of the birth world I like to pretend that I am a textile artist by making messy, knitted, woven, and stitched pieces to hang around my house. I have two dogs, named Bert and Ramona, who I enjoy smothering with love and taking on hikes. My partner and I spend our free time watching reruns of Futurama, Seinfeld, & Broad City while whipping up a storm in our kitchen.

Gabi was my midwife in the prenatal, birth and postnatal care of my second child. Not only is she a warm, loving and relatable person, but she truly cares about women’s health and creating the most natural and beautiful birthing experience as possible for her clients. I have no doubt that Gabi will grow a tremendous following with her dedication to, knowledge of, and passion for the profession of baby catching!
