As a Registered Midwife my role is the primary care provider for healthy pregnant women throughout their pregnancy, during their birth, and postpartum for her and her infant for 6 weeks.
I view working with birthing women as an incredible honour and privilege that continues to amaze me, and perpetually fills me with wonder. My experiences as a midwife reinforced my determination to become a care provider who supports women in their childbearing year in making evidenced based, informed choices, and to birth with dignity and respect.
This e-portfolio serves to house my professional and educational achievements, as well as store artefacts from the Masters of Health Studies program. In completing a Masters of Health Studies, I hope to become an educator. To share that wonder with others, and to foster future midwives in supporting families on their journey to parenthood.

Being raised in the Thompson-Okanagan, my early life was characterized by barefoot-summers, close-knit community, and a curiosity for the world beyond my doorstep. That curiosity led me away from Vernon to study International Relations at the University of British Columbia (UBC). During my time at UBC, I attended a conference on Maternal Health. At that conference I discovered my passion for working with birthing women and their families, and decided to embark on the journey to become a midwife.
