Childbirth Education Coordinator, M.C.C.E. Instructor, Cappa Certified Lactation Educator
I currently am certified in Childbirth & Lactation Education. I have been employed with St.Mary's for 30 years now, where I work for Women and Children Services as the Childbirth Coordinator. I have a passion for teaching as I truly want to empower moms and dads and help them to have their own personal birth experience and that starts with knowing what to expect and that they can make informed choices when it comes to their birth.
