Caitlin first witnessed birth at age 12, when her sister birthed her nephew. This moment sparked her passion for supporting folks during their reproductive and sexual health journeys. Over 10 years later, Caitlin once again attended her sister’s birthing experience and realized her heart was in birth work. Her midwifery practice is shaped by experiences working in public health and reproductive justice advocacy. She seeks to honor patients' lived experiences and to ensure access to safe, equitable, and empowering care for her patients and their communities.
Caitlin's educational studies further increased her love of women’s and reproductive health. Her public health work with sex workers and people living with HIV inspired her to pursue midwifery as a way to enact her values through patient-centered and non-judgmental care. This prompted her to complete her MSN in midwifery at Seattle University and become a member of the American College of Nurse Midwives.
Since 2018, Caitlin has worked as a reproductive health clinician in Seattle and as a full-scope CNM attending births in a freestanding midwifery and birth center in Colorado. Clients working with Caitlin would describe her as open, encouraging, gentle, and collaborative. She trusts birth, and she supports her clients in finding their voice and their strengths throughout their healthcare journey.
