As a prospective midwife at the very beginning of my career journey, I am absolutely thrilled to have the chance to work in an environment like Strathcona Midwifery Collective. 

I graduated from the Medical Office Administration program at Douglas College in 2013, and since then I have been working in different health care facilities trying to gain experience in Canada’s vast health care system. My educational goals vary drastically from midwife to psychiatric nurse, so I decided to take a break from my studies to mature, get to know myself, and work under other healthcare professionals until I feel that I am ready to get back to school.

In my spare time, I take care of my own babies – my cats! I’ve had Cowboy and Maggie for most of the last decade, so we have a very special bond. Obviously, neither are particularly photogenic, but I love them anyway. I also volunteer on the medical team with VOKRA, the Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association, a few times a week. I administer medications to the kitties and give them lots of cuddles, which is very rewarding. I am proud to have achieved cat lady status so young.
