About Me...... 

I first became interested in The Bradley Method? during my pregnancy with my first son. I wanted an approach to birth that included having the most important person in my life coach me and go through the experience with me. My husband and I went through the training and had an AMAZING birth experience. Labor and delivery was such a beautiful experience and an awesome way to start our family!! It has created such a strong bond not only between myself and my son but also between my husband and son.  I used this method again for the births of my other 2 sons and loved it!

I have been teaching since 2007 and absolutely love seeing my students learn and grow into informed consumers, passionate about and prepared for their own natural childbirth.

I hope that every woman can share a similar start to her family!!


I've asked my graduates what they thought about my teaching style and me as a teacher. 

This is what they said....

"You are very easy-going and approachable.  I thought it was really kind of you to take the time to ask each couple how their week had been at the beginning of each class.  You employed several different teaching strategies into each lesson, which really helped to reinforce concepts.  I would not hesitate to refer interested couples to you.  You are knowledgeable not only about the Bradley Method, but a whole host of other important topics that are key to laying the foundation for a successful childbirth.  I also really appreciated you having a well stocked library of books available for check-out."  ~ Jamie

"You have a good ability to break things down and simplify them for parents, this is especially handy for new parents. You didn't assume we knew what you were talking about it, instead, you explained everything."  ~ Elaine

 "I liked how you talked about your birth stories. I also liked how you would engage everyone in conversation." ~ Renee
