A little about me 

Growing up, I loved all things math. I loved the formulas, the rhythmn, and above all else, the presence of black and white answers. I found comfort in the lack of ambiguity. Though I would still self identify as a little neurotic and type A (because who doesn't love a good list!) I understand now more than ever the pitfalls of dichotomous thinking and try to incorporate this awareness into my work as a doula.

 

In terms of philosophy, I was raised in a house where we weren't afraid to try a homeopathic or suffer through the wrath of oregano oil but also with a deep respect for science. To this day, I truly believe that traditional and holistic medicine can successfully coexist and even complement each other. This belief guides my work as a doula as I have a genuine appreciation for the contributions of both modern and alternative medicine. 

When not attending births, I am for all intents and purposes a busy busy bee! I am currently pursing a Bachelor of Science complemented with a Biomedical Research Certificate at the University of Alberta, volunteering with the Terra Centre for teen moms, coaching speed skating with Special Olympics, and sitting on the U of A Student Advisory Committee. Any leftover time is spent golfing (quite poorly), baking, going to country music concerts, or indulging in a bit of Greys Anatomy.

 

My hope for the future is to continue on to medical school and above all else, start a family.
