My name is Grace, and I am a mother of two. I grew up in the Tri-Cities so it’s an absolute privilege to be able to support birthing families in our community.
I attended Seattle Midwifery School (now known as Bastyr University) in Seattle, WA where I gained a Midwifery Certificate in 2010. I have attended births in various locations: home, birth center and hospital. I believe that birth can be a natural process. This belief was solidified during the births of my two sons who were both born at home into the hands of midwives.
Prior to midwifery, I worked as a Registered Kinesiologist rehabilitating clients through active rehabilitation and volunteered as a doula. I hold a B.Sc Kinesiology and a certificate in Health and Fitness from Simon Fraser University. I also attended Douglas College’s Doula training course.
I completed the UBC Multi-Jurisdictional Bridging Program (MMBP), a program that orients internationally trained midwives to Canadian midwifery practice specifically for BC, in 2012 and have been working as a Registered Midwife ever since.
I look forward to meeting you and supporting your family grow.
