I have practiced in Kitchener-Waterloo since 1997 after obtaining registration with the College of Midwives in Ontario (CMO) through completion of the Prior Learning and education/Experience program (PLEA). This process evaluates midwifery experience and credentials from other jurisdictions for equivalency to the Ontario Midwifery Education Program. Before coming to the K-W area, I practiced midwifery in Detroit, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
My midwifery training includes undergraduate nursing and midwifery education as well as a Masters Degree in Midwifery Practice. I am a midwifery student preceptor for both the university and the IMPP midwifery education programs. After 25 years of midwifery practice and two thousand deliveries, I continue to appreciate the natural miracle of birth.
