I am both a certified Childbirth Instructor and Lactation Educator. I have been employed with St.Mary's for 29years, my current position is for Women and Children Services where I am the Childbirth Coordinator.  I have a passion for teaching as I truly want to empower  moms and dads and help them to have their own personal birth experience and that starts with knowing what to expect and that they can make informed choices when it comes to their birth.

My goal as a childbirth instructor is to educate expectant mothers and their partners so that they have a better understanding of the birthing process. It is an honor to teach and empower families so that they can achieve their ideal birth. I’ve been teaching childbirth and breastfeeding classes for three years now, and I look forward to many more. When I’m not teaching childbirth classes, I’m teaching my group of fabulous fifth graders, or taking care of my own family which includes two very active boys. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journey.

I have had the pleasure of teaching childbirth classes for the past 3 years. I feel so privileged to be a part of the childbirth journey for so many people. My hope for families as they prepare for  labor and delivery is to gain a much better understanding of the birthing process and the incredible options to finding calm and confidence as they prepare for this most exciting time in their lives.
