Charli was born and raised in rural Oregon. She grew up with an affinity for the outdoors, singing, and caring for living beings. Through a handful of different birth experiences in her early adult life, she learned that midwifery was her true calling.
Charli is a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) through the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM). She is also a Licensed Direct-Entry Midwife (LDM) in the state of Oregon and is a Licensed Midwife (LM) in the state of Washington.
Charli is deeply committed to her clients. She is drawn to supporting and honoring people as they claim the power of their own pregnancy, birthing, and postpartum experience. She is fulfilled by providing care to birthing people and their families throughout the experiences and transformations of the childbearing year. Charli values the authenticity, compassion, and vulnerability that she is both witness to and is able to express throughout her midwifery work. Charli’s sense of humor is woven into they way that she works and she believes that finding the humor in life is a way to connect throughout midwifery care.
Outside of her work as a midwife, Charli can be found playing and hiking with her husband and their dog Murphy, crushin’ it at the gym, binge-watching heartfelt reality tv shows, heavily relying on google maps to get anywhere, and laughing loudly at low brow jokes.
