My midwifery education was focused specifically on out of hospital maternity and well woman care, and primarily involved home birth. After earning my credentials in 2012, I have practiced privately at home and with a number of freestanding birth centers in Kansas, Missouri, and Texas. I even caught quite a few international babies while working at a rural clinic in Haiti, and a private hospital in China.
My heels are now grounded in Midtown Kansas City, and I tirelessly provide care for women in their homes throughout this sprawling Metro. I have dreams of nurturing a community of women here, who will all raise a generation of children to love and be kind. I like to think that the peace I protect during birth travels with these babies for a lifetime.

My journey to midwifery began in 2000 when searching for my own midwife. Finding that I would have to travel to another state to receive care prompted me to get involved with The Friends of Missouri Midwives and The Missouri Midwives Association and to work toward the legalization of midwifery in Missouri. I also became a certified labor doula and Bradley childbirth instructor, and I went on to teach natural childbirth classes in my home for over 10 years.
After the homebirth of my fourth baby, I knew I was being called to become a midwife. I left the accounting field and became a full-time stay at home mom/part-time midwifery student. I attended births with almost all of the midwives who were practicing at the time. I eventually went on to apprentice with a CPM doing homebirth and a CNM doing birth center births. In 2010 I sat for the NARM exam and became a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM).
As a primary midwife I have had the tremendous blessing to welcome over 600 babies into this world!

I grew passion for serving women after I was served by midwives for my 5th birth and the next couple after that. I have had every type of birth from a failed induction that ended in a cesarean section to induced VBAC's to completely natural from start to finish! I serve women with compassion for having been right where you are but also knowing that you can gain tools to have a wonderful birth experience. I look forward to empowering and supporting many women to achieve a great birth experience. I have an amazing support system at home with my husband of over 20 years, 8 amazing children, a son in law and a beautiful grand baby, whom I had the privilege of delivering myself. I serve a 75 mile radius from Columbia.

I began my journey in 1979 as a hospital-based nurse then in 1997 graduated with my MSN as a Certified Nurse-Midwife from the University of Missouri. I ALWAYS felt like home-birth was the best for families. Since 2007 I've been enjoying a home/clinic birth practice. In 2017, I couldn't be happier or more satisfied with our family practice/dental/obstetric clinic. I serve a 120 mi radius from Versailles, MO.

I attend home births throughout southwest Missouri (and occasionally go to regions 4, 5, and 8 on the map above) and do prenatal checkups in Springfield (main office), Stockton (home office) or Pierce City (third location!). I rely on my hands and simple tools for most routine examinations, reserving the use of technology to assist only when necessary. I strive to balance modern technology with the ancient midwifery practices of my Native American ancestors. I prefer to treat with special food and water first; herbal, vitamin and mineral supplements second, homeopathic medicine third, and drugs only as a last resort. I am a homebirth mom, wife and former homeschool mom (my kids are all graduated and grown up now!).
