MANA Secretary

I returned from the Alburquerque MANA conference deeply inspired by our community and the important work being done, particularly on a national level. Raised on a foundation of activism and social consciousness, I found myself yearning to contribute to furthering midwifery and building an ever-stronger community of midwives. I am a New Jersey licensed midwife living in New York and Montréal. Prior to becoming a midwife in 2010, I have served families as a prenatal massage therapist (since 1997), a practitioner of Maya abdominal massage (since 2002) and a doula (since 2006). My role as chair of the clinical studies department at the Swedish Institute in NYC (2001-2006) helped hone some of the particular skills that will be needed as Secretary – excellent professional communication skills, an ability to work effectively and collaboratively with a diverse group of passionate people, and an appreciation for administrative detail. I am excited to bring my interpersonal and administrative skills, as well as my passion and commitment to midwifery, to the position of MANA Secretary.
