My education includes a Women’s Studies and Environmental Studies degree from UVic and a Midwifery degree from UBC. My life has been enriched by working with people with disabilities over many years. I have also had the privilege of working in remote Nunavik along-side Inuit women and midwives. I am very pleased to offer accessible midwifery care to deaf women, with my knowledge of American Sign Language (ASL).
My practice partners and I provide midwifery care to young families at the SMILE program in Burnaby, once a week.http://www.stleo.ca/programs/smile
I have a new love for triathlons and when not caring for moms and babies, I can be found swimming, cycling, or running.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Pomegranate experience. We received excellent care – before, during and after the birth of our daughter. While my wife was in labour, a number of complications arose and the midwife team handled everything as we had discussed ahead of time. We felt well cared for, supported and encouraged in our experience as new parents and we’re so grateful for their help. Thank you Pomegranate!
