Direct Entry Midwife
I have been a licensed Direct- Entry Midwife since February 2015. I became interested in midwifery after the birth of my first child in 2010 (at Mat- Su Midwifery). I was deeply impressed by how stable, competent and encouraging my midwives were during that process. Previously I had been considering a career in the healthcare industry, but could not settle on what to pursue. Slowly, the idea of becoming a midwife became an idea I could not shake. I started my online academic course with Via Vita Midwifery Foundation, then did "hands- on" training here at Mat- Su Midwifery for nearly 4 years.
I am a 2nd generation Alaskan with 2 daughters, a husband of 14 years, and a Siamese cat. I enjoy skiing, biking, reading, cooking and travel.
