My journey supporting families through pregnancy and childbirth started as a Practical Nurse in a small town in the Kootenays. I started down the path to childbirth work as a pro-bono doula and educator.
In 2010 I ventured out to pursue a midwifery education. I earned an Associates Science of Midwifery from the National College of Midwifery in Taos, New Mexico, working alongside homebirth midwives in the USA and a not-for-profit birth center in the Philippines called Mercy in Action.
After returning to Canada I decided to pursue Canadian Registration through the Ryerson University’s International Midwifery Bridging program.
I practiced in Ontario for two years before returning home to the mountains of BC. After working two years at a practice in Langley, my small town roots drew me to seek opportunities outside the busyness of the Lower Mainland.
I’m now grateful to call Williams Lake home. I love hiking, gardening, music, good food with friends, and spending time with my family.
I also love working alongside the raw and real beauty of birth and supporting women as they journey through the process of bringing a child into the world.
Hello! My name is Katie and I am so delighted to be part of the Cariboo Midwives team! I grew up here in Williams Lake and always knew I was at home in the Cariboo.
Prior to studying midwifery at the University of British Columbia, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology, and had a few extra adventures along the way!
What I love about midwifery is it’s never-ending opportunities to revel in life’s little moments. It is a true privilege to hear peoples’ stories, bear witness to their life’s journey, and most of all to watch families expand and unfold in all their various shapes and forms!
My partner and young kiddo are very wonderful and supportive accomplices to my budding life as a midwife. When not on call I am usually off on a toddler-led adventure, hopefully enjoying a nice cup of tea and a little bit of sunshine!
Hi! My name is Keziah and I was born and raised in Williams Lake, BC, to a family of loving parents and four older brothers. I grew up performing and teaching lots in the community with piano and voice, and later received a Diploma in Music Performance from Camosun College.
Now back in Williams Lake, I am happily married and enjoy many different hobbies such as hiking, paddle boarding, dance, embroidery, painting, and so much more...
I am delighted to learn more about midwifery and am hoping to become a midwife in the future.
I am excited to be a part of the Cariboo Midwives team, and look forward to welcoming you at the clinic.
