I have some bittersweet news with you. I have accepted a position as a staff midwife and practice manager at Bella Vie Gentle Birth Center in Salem, Oregon. I feel excited to work closely with the other midwives at the center in a challenging and fast-paced environment. 

This change has come about after a lot of thought and consultation, and concern for the people both currently and formerly in my care. I will be closing my practice by January 31st, 2023 and plan to be moved to Oregon by March 1st, 2023.

It is incredibly important to me to ensure that every single person who may have been in my care has a provider that gives them comfort and confidence in their future pregnancy. I feel strongly that the following providers will provide great care to you.

Sheboygan area clients:

If you wish to be seen in Oshkosh, you can reach out to my former student, Hanna Camarena. Hanna was licensed in 2022, and has been in practice a little over a year. Check out her website.

Alba Birth Center is the birth center I co-founded and is now run by one of my former students. They have a gorgeous new location in Menasha. In most cases, the drive will be worth it and you’ll be able to make it before your birth.

Milwaukee area clients:

Some of you may know Lucky Tomaszek, from her covering for me for vacations or illnesses. She covers Milwaukee and the surrounding areas and has a beautiful birth suite in the city. She has many years of experience and provides excellent care.

Sabrina Foulks-Thomas works out of Sussex and covers a similar area that I have been covering. She has worked in the Milwaukee area for many years and is a great asset to the midwifery community.

Erin Cassidente, my current student, will complete her training and become a Licensed Midwife within the next two years. She is passionate about quality care and has poured herself into her training. She will serve you well. You may keep in touch with her on FaceBook or via email:

You can also search for Midwives on the following websites if the people I listed above are not available – C.A.R.E. Network or Wisconsin Guild of Midwives

I feel honored and humbled by the invitation to support families during their pregnancies and births. I take the responsibility of that trust very seriously and thank you for inviting me to be a part of your pregnancy.  Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have during this time.
