Steph graduated from the Midwifery Education Program at Laurentian University in 2008. She is from the KW area and spent the first two years of her midwifery career practicing in Cambridge.

As a young adult, Steph witnessed the birth of her nieces and nephews through the care of St. Jacobs Midwives. She was drawn to the intimate and trusting relationship that was formed between the midwives and the families they cared for. She loved the way that midwives empowered their clients and supported them through the process of becoming parents. Steph finds the relationships made with families to be the most rewarding part of her work.

Steph stays active in the profession of midwifery in a variety of ways. She has previously worked with the professional association in the area of quality and risk management. She currently enjoys providing peer assessments through the College of Midwives Quality Assurance Program. In 2019 she completed a Masters in Health Science Education, studying best practices for how to promote quality education for learners in the medical field.

When she’s not working as a midwife, you can find Steph enjoying the outdoors, cuddling puppies, and planning what delicious things she will eat on her next vacation.
