Hi there, and welcome!

My journey to being a midwife began with the birth of our first daughter. The decision to have a birth doula by my side was one of the best I ever made. I felt secure, respected, and heard. Despite staff changes and the many hours that passed us in the night, my husband and I were well supported and cared for. My birth experience was positive and empowering to me. The process instilled in me the belief that every woman should have that support available to them.

So, I began serving as a doula over four years and just last year began my training to become a licensed and certified midwife with Labor of Love Birth Center in Tyler.

And I am richly blessed to serve growing East Texas families in these ways.

I am so honored and overjoyed to support each family as they welcome a new life into the world. I love seeing clients change before my eyes as they become a first-time parent, feel the relief and victory that comes when they have reached their goals, and experience the love that fills the room. Becoming a mother is incredible, breathtaking, and challenging. There is no greater reward.
