Practice Philosophy

While studying classical voice at McGill University in the 90's, I discovered midwifery serendipitously when I purchased a book in my local health-food store that had a cool-looking cover. That book was Spiritual Midwifery. From that moment, despite being committed to pursuing a career as a classical singer, I was hooked on midwifery and women's health.

More than 10 years later, I was living in New York City, working as a singer, yet struggling to make ends meet, when I began to revisit the idea of midwifery as a serious career choice. My mother's short struggle with ovarian cancer and subsequent death from that terrible disease clinched the decision. I wanted to do something to directly impact improving women's health, so I began my serious pursuit of midwifery.

In 2007, I completed my studies of nursing and midwifery at Columbia University and went to work in Brooklyn at the hospital with the busiest labor room in the state. After 4 years in that environment, serving the underserved of NYC, I decided it was time for a change. I am thrilled to be working with the Midwives at Mount Auburn Hospital providing the art and science of midwifery care to the women in this community.

Outside of work, you will find me continuing to practice my arias, performing, and learning to be a bit of a filmmaker. I always have a camera on-hand, capturing the magic the world has to offer.
