Who Am I?

As a mother of nine, I have a variety of personal birth experiences myself and understand the importance of having evidence-based information available to make informed choices for my own care. As a Direct Entry Midwife in North Mississippi, I will strive to share that education and information by offering personalized, evidence-based care for your childbearing year. My goal is to give you and your family the support and knowledge you need to make informed, evidence-based decisions about your own pregnancy and labor process. If you'd like to know about me and the services that I offer, I'd love to hear from you!

Certificates and Trainings

As a professional Midwife, I’ve received training from multiple certified organizations, and maintain my skills and knowledge through continued education and research. This continued training helps me stay up to date with the most relevant information, and ensures I am providing you with the best, evidenced-base care possible. I invite you to review my training qualifications and experience below.  Please contact me with any questions about my training and certifications that you may have.
