A Little About Myself.
Wife, mother, auntie, daughter, sister, and Midwife. Being a servant to community is nothing new to me. From organizing charity events, to public speaking, teaching, and operating Colorado's only Perinatal Safe Spot, my life's work focuses on providing a voice, representation, and restorative justice to our most vulnerable population; pregnant families and their babies.
The loss of a baby, no matter when the loss occurs, forever changes not only the heart and nucleus of a family, it alters the individuals perspective on life and pregnancy.
I firmly believe one person can be the conduit in bridging the heart of communities near and far. Normalizing the grief of a loss creates opportunity for shared education, shared resources, community, and kindship.

Life is the ultimate endurance challenge. Every human at some point will face challenges and obstacles that are difficult and in some cases extraordinarily painful. However, when we endure we grow beyond the confines of what we can perceive as physically and/or mentally possible. Endurance requires energy, it requires determination, it requires strength, it requires stamina, and the aspiration to move into a place and space of equilibrium. What we do when we transition from endurance is equally as important as what we do when we endure.
For a person to build endurance they must learn to listen to their body, fuel their body, allow the body to have healthy rest periods, recognize how the body responds to increased stress, recognize how the body responds in recovery, determine if the outside body is reflective of the inside body, and above all else lean in on your community to care for you.
As humans, must of us will never voluntarily place ourselves in situations to endure discomfort, pain, or suffering. But why is that? You see, we are all capable of doing hard things, the question is; do we want to? Showing up and having no expectations of good or bad is only half the battle. (Trust me, I know). We resist the temptation to tap out by reaching out and placing your hand in mine so that we can support one another along the way. There is no need to go it alone.
