Christine began her career in mental health. After graduating with a degree in psychology from the University of Virginia and practicing as a counselor in a residential treatment center for teens, she realized that her heart was leading her towards birth and midwifery. She attended midwifery school at Vanderbilt University and, following graduation, practiced as a midwife in a birth center in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Christine enjoys helping women and their families embrace birth as a normal, empowering and sacred event. Her goal is to offer women the opportunity to birth in a calm and supportive environment in which the laboring mother is in control and is the center of attention.
Christine moved to the Northwest because she loves spending time in the outdoors. She spends a large part of her free time running, hiking, snowshoeing, and camping. She also enjoys knitting, reading, and traveling to destinations across the United States to visit family and friends. She and her husband are parents to twins, a girl and a boy, born in 2011.
