My path to this work began as a child in the kitchens and living rooms of my Grandmothers.
I would sit quietly and listen attentively as Elders spoke of old family stories, remedios, birth, death, God, seemingly magical occurrences ---topics so mysterious and exciting to my young mind!
Even as a child, I felt an incredibly strong connection to my ancestors, these stories and traditional ways.
As I grew into an adult, I searched for work that would honor my traditions while still being of service in the modern world.
I went on to formally study biology, dance, body work, herbalism, various forms of yoga, birth and death. All of this as well as my ceremonial life inform my life's work as a Traditional Midwife, Teacher and Ordained Minister.
In my life and work I strive to practice balance, radical love and embodiment, acceptance and compassion for myself and others.
With gratitude, I thank my Teachers, Elders, Community and my beautiful Partner and Children for their support.
