Jennifer had an epiphany in the moments following her son’s natural birth with a midwife, in 2004. She said, ” I want her job!” While Jennifer had obtained her bachelor’s degree in Journalism, she had always desired to support women and families, obtaining a minor in Women’s Studies in 2001. In 2005, Jennifer became a doula, and went on to serve more than 200 families, in the Phoenix metro area, through 2008. At this time, she embarked upon a two year intensive midwifery apprenticeship program. In 2009, she became a certified childbirth educator, teaching at Chandler Regional and Mercy Gilbert Medical Centers.
In 2011, Jennifer achieved her dream of obtaining her midwifery license, having assisted more than 300 families through doula services, childbirth education, and midwifery services. Currently, Jennifer practices at moxie midwifery, an intimate and successful home birth midwifery practice serving the East Valley, Maricopa, and Casa Grande.
Jennifer is also a Board Certified Hypnotherapist and Meditation Trainer at Moxie Meditation, and she co-facilitates an amazing women’s retreat each year, called Magical Mama Retreat. Check it out here!
In her spare time, she enjoys being with her soul mate, David, and her son, drinking green smoothies, playing guitar and doing yoga.
