I am so excited about this stage of my midwifery journey! I have been a Certified Nurse Midwife since January 2008. I have always worked in a hospital setting and am thrilled to be able to transition to the natural setting of assisting your birth in your home!

I believe pregnancy and childbirth are natural, healthy processes and that the mother knows her body best and can best make her own decisions based on comprehensive information and education. I am here to facilitate the process and ensure a healthy, positive outcome. 
I offer comprehensive care prenatally, during, and following your birth. 


Make the choice: Have A Better Birth!

Your Baby, Your Body, Your Birth

Katrina is a student midwife studying through the National College of Midwifery. She grew interested in midwifery due to early exposure to the field of birth: with a mother as an OB/GYN, a previous job at an OB/GYN practice, and years of birth stories from her work as a nanny, it’s really no wonder she felt a calling to this field. Katrina got her start in the birth world as a volunteer birth doula for Vanderbilt University Hospital, trained through DONA International.  Before starting birth work, she worked for many years as a nanny where she practiced family-first care.  Katrina is thrilled to be working hands-on with women in the community and to be studying midwifery care, the realization of a life-long dream. Katrina studied psychology at Vanderbilt University and took two additional years of sciences at the University of Maryland.
