I truly believe that it takes an entire community to raise our children and nurture ourselves. I am a parent to a 21-year-old, 18-year-old and 16-year-old twins. Having four beautiful children while living in Ottawa, inspired me to provide families with exceptional postpartum education & support. I know that many of the families that move to Ottawa find themselves without a sense of community that is necessary for the parents and their children.

I have been providing education & support to families for over twenty years. After receiving my Social Service Worker Diploma in 1993, I worked in the area of mental health before joining the birth community with the Ottawa Childbirth Education Association and the Ottawa Hospital . In 2004 I helped create the Bringing Baby Home class, followed by the OCEA Infant Sleep and Grandparent class.   I returned to school in 2018 to complete a Masters of Education.

In my spare time, you can find me with a pair of knitting needles, training for marathons and playing the bagpipes at local Scottish events.
