I am a natural-minded mom who loves coffee, wine and books, along with cooking for my family and getting dirt on my hands in the garden with my kids.
I taught yoga for 17 years, but I'm currently taking a break from teaching to focus on my birth work, family and massage clients. Yoga is still an integral part of who I am and how I see the world.
I believe in attachment parenting, free range kids, and the importance of nurturing our kids' individual spirits.
If I didn't do the work I do now (which I cherish, by the way...), I'd be a travel photographer. We try to visit someplace new in the world every year. But, although I love to travel, I despise flying and sometimes wish that we still had to travel by train or boat.
I am an introvert with a big voice and a strong personality, who loves adventure, but is afraid of crowded spaces and, for some odd reason, bridges.
I fantasize about booking a hotel room by myself with a giant tub, fluffy bed and comfy chair by a window for when the next Outlander or Game of Thrones book finally arrives. I seriously can't be expected to be a part of society with pages unread. Plus, being an obsessive reader has lent me quite the vocabulary (FYI - I'm just as likely to drop the F-bomb in conversation as I am "folderol").
I love a small house where we all can be together a lot, with big beds that invite the whole family to cuddle.
I birthed both my babies at home, but love supporting moms in a variety of birth settings! Evidence-based birth support is my jam!
