I am a nurse, doula, placenta encapsulator, mother, and advocate for empowered reproductive health.

As a placenta medicine practitioner, I believe that your placenta is a sacred object that is to be treated as such.  When handling your placenta, I promise to use reverence and care, and abide by all health and safety protocols set forth by PBi and governing agencies.


My partner and I welcomed our first child in 2008, our second in 2012, and expanded our family again in 2017.  Ramona, Emmett, Cohen & Nicolai are the light of our lives. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Reproductive Anthropology at Burlington College, focusing on the ways that women relate to reproductive health in their lives.  I am a Licensed Practical Nurse in the State of Colorado, and I look forward to pursuing Nurse-Midwifery in the future.


I have lived in Grand Junction since 2004, and my family has been in the Grand Valley for more than a century.  We are raising our children on our historic family farmstead in Orchard Mesa, and love being able to feed them fresh, whole foods from our garden and orchard.
