Realizing that midwifery was her calling, Katie trained to become a Bradley Method teacher, lactation educator and birth doula. She quickly enrolled in midwifery school, hoping to help families have the same peaceful experience she had with her own labors and births.

Her national certification opened the door to becoming a licensed midwife. Katie has since worked in California, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts. She has attended over 650 deliveries and has been involved in over a thousand births. She has attended women of all walks of life and has supported a wide variety of options and opportunities.
In her spare time, Katie likes to hike, study phytotherapy, write and paint. She lives with her two children and her husband in Fitzwilliam NH.
"On our big day, you were there to support us through all of the peaks and valleys that came along with 39 hours of labor. You have an intrinsic quality of calmness, dedication and a way of explaining that helped put us at ease through all of the hecticness. Once we finally brought little Michael home from the hospital, you were still there for us, answering our first time mommy and daddy questions, always being patient and reassuring. We are so thankful that you were with us on our journey."

"I wanted to thank you for being an awesome doula! When you arrived, you were able to get me refocused and were a source of strength for me all night.

I will be forever grateful for your help during Megan's birth!!"

Thank you for taking such good care of me."
