    "I am a mom of 6 amazing children, and have been working with women during the childbearing years for over 25 years. I began my journey as a Medical Assistant in an very busy OB/GYN practice in Norfolk VA. I learned so much from the incredible doctors there, and after a marriage and a move, I became an herbalist and started studying reflexology and other healing modalities. My own birth journies led me to become a doula through training with both DONA in 1998 and ALACE (Now called InLabor) in 2000 in and began attending women at both hospital and at home births. I also served as a WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor for 3 years in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, where I began intensive self study in midwifery in 2001, and then graduated from The House of LaMatrona School of Holistic Midwifery in May of 2005. I have worked with and learned from many midwives, doctors and other holistic health care professionals in and around Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia and West Virginia. In addition to my work with women in labor and birth, I am passionate about teaching and writing. I spend much of my time researching and writing articles that pertain to pregnancy and birth, and am especially passionate about women who desire a normal birth after a previous cesarean section. I am currently working on an educational program specifically geared toward healthy holistic pregnancies, as well teaching natural family planning, breastfeeding, and of course... traditional birth. My practice incorporates many holistic modalities that I have learned from a wide variety of practitioners. I also worked with a group of student midwives, who are in varying degrees of educational and clinical training to become midwives and traditional birth attendants themselves. "
