Sarah was raised on a farm in southern Michigan. From the time her mom was pregnant with her younger sister, Sarah told everyone she wanted to be a “mommy doctor.” When Sarah found midwifery, she knew she had found her calling. Midwifery is a blend of a number of Sarah’s passions: supporting women, the awe of science and nature, and the privilege of witnessing the creation of new life.

Sarah is a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) through the North American Registry of Midwives, a Licensed Direct-Entry Midwife (LDM) in the state of Oregon and a Licensed Midwife (LM) in the state of Washington. She believes in birth as an opportunity for transformation and healing, and she is grounded in the midwifery model, which focuses on client-centered, holistic, and individualized care. Sarah is also an experienced herbalist and welcomes client interest in herbal and dietary approaches to treatment and management of complications that may arise during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.

Sarah came to Oregon thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and knew as soon as she laid eyes on Mt Hood that she had to make the Pacific Northwest her home. She speaks Spanish and spends a lot of time watching telenovelas over a bowl of ultra-salty popcorn. She’s a huge musical theater nerd and never tires of talking about Anne of Green Gables, one of her childhood heroes.
