A Little About Me

I live in Valley Center on the border of Escondido. I have been happily married since 2014. I enjoy studying herbology and integrating all I have learned into my midwifery practice. I find peace and relaxation in attempting to garden, although I was not born with my mom's green thumb. I have two Australian shepherds, their names are Nezzie and Willow. Nezzie loves to chase her toys while Willow is all about cuddling and getting her loves. My husband and I play coed softball together. My husband and I also enjoy camping with our dogs. Other than that, I spend most of my free time hanging out with my friends and family.

Thank you for trusting me with your family

My Midwifery Journey


At the end of my 6th grade year my little brother decided to make his arrival earth side. His birth was a planned home birth. While my 7 other siblings slept, I snuck down the hall to listen to birthing sounds. I got excited when I heard pushing sounds start so I crept closer. One of the midwives spotted me and asked if I could come in. I was welcomed into the birth room. The miracle of birth put me in awe instantly. My brother was cute and all but the actual physiological process of birth was where all my interest was held. Then the midwives introduced me to the placenta and I was hooked.

After some life experiences, in 2013 I was finally ready to start my Midwifery studies. I was accepted into the 2014 cohort at Nizhoni Institute of Midwifery. In 2015 I started my preceptorship with Milagrose Midwifery and when Acorn Birth and Wellness Center opened I continued with them. In December of 2019 I finished my preceptorship and in January 2021 I received my license from the Medical board of California
