I am currently the president of MCCE and had been teaching classes for 3 years now. I love teaching soon to be parents as they start this new chapter of their life.  When I am not teaching I stay home with my two girls Anna and Emily.

Mesa County Childbirth Educator

I have always had a passion to educate women about how and why our bodies work.  After the birth of my first child, my passion began to focus on a woman's journey to motherhood.  In 2018, I had the opportunity to begin teaching childbirth education classes.  My goal is to equip women with the knowledge, tools and techniques they can use to achieve their ideal birth.  I believe the more information an expecting mother has, the more confident she will be as she experiences the miracle of birth. It is an honor to meet each and every mother and be a small part of their story.
