I am an administrator with a passion for making meaningful personal connections and building genuine community. I come from the arts world and alongside my varied administrative experience in that industry, my education and background is as a professional opera singer and vocal instructor, with a bachelor and masters of music. I am originally from Ontario but have called Alberta home since 2002, meeting my husband here in Calgary as members of the Calgary Opera Chorus in 2012. We now live in Cochrane with our incredibly joyful and gregarious son Phoenix, born in 2019.
Since becoming a mother and experiencing the inspiring birth support community first hand through midwifery care, I have wanted to be as connected to the birth world as I could. This passion led me to pursue my Birth Doula training in early 2020 and I am honoured to be invited into the sacred space of pregnancy, labour and birth by supporting families as a member of their birth team. I am beyond thrilled to be applying my administrative skills in this position with Aurora and I am excited to be a small part of each family’s experience at the clinic.
Beyond singing and birth, I am passionate about exploring our beautiful province with my family by camping and hiking as much as possible, trying out new recipes, hanging out with our cats Pumkin and Lewis and baking/decorating cakes!
