Janessa has been fascinated by pregnancy since witnessing her first birth on the family farm as a young child (it was a calf!). She knew very early on that midwifery was the right path for her and feels privileged to walk with people into the journey of parenthood.

Janessa graduated from the Midwifery Education Program at Laurentian University in 2008. She works with families in both our St Jacobs and New Hamburg clinic locations.

When not busy with the midwife life, Janessa is working towards a certificate in conflict management and mediation at Conrad Grebel University College.
