Heather is a Certified Nurse Midwife who is passionate about taking care of, and educating women throughout their lives. She enjoys helping women with many topics/issues including birth control, the menstrual cycle, conception, pregnancy, childbirth, general health, menopause, and any other issues that may come up in a woman’s life. Born and raised in Eugene, Oregon, Heather went to school in New York City, and then began her midwifery career in the Philadelphia area in 2010. She became a midwife because of her fascination with pregnancy and childbirth, and through her midwifery education, became passionate about women’s health in general. In her free time, she enjoys running, hiking, camping, paddling, mountain biking and skiing with her husband – which is helpful, considering one of her other big interests is good food. She also enjoys other activities, like watching movies and reading. Heather is excited to be back in Oregon!
