I am a Georgia born, full-time parent of two toddlers living in lower Manhattan. I like to hang at the playground, lift barbells, and knock my friends around at roller derby. I love talking about all the weird things that happen to our bodies as we grow little humans and get older. I am positive, a good listener and most people feel like they have met me before. I love 70s funk music and am really good at “name that tune”. I love to laugh but can also be serious and assertive.
I have a special professional interest in working with families conceiving with ART and IVF and unmedicated hospital births. I am also passionate about normalizing exercise during pregnancy and pelvic floor health. I am personally experienced with fertility treatments and have supported many types of births including: epidural, induction, unmedicated, high-risk pregnancies, VBAC and Cesarean Birth.
Birth work is my passion and I’m so glad to be able to share that with you.
