Tell us about a time you showed compassion at work.

98% of my job is joyful. It's a happy area of healthcare. But I have a special place within me for pregnancy loss. The loss of an unborn child is something that changes women to their core. It changes their perception and enjoyment of any future pregnancies. Slowly, our society is beginning to discuss pregnancy loss, and I hope with awareness- more people will show compassion and support the the feelings and experiences women encounter with loss.

What are three traits you are proud to possess?

Authentic//Empowering//Compassionate

What is the most exciting part of your job?

The most exciting part of my job is knowing that I still provide direct care to women, and every day will be different. Everyone is going through their own struggle and challenges - and I am very privileged to provide care and information so they can make informed decisions.

What are you most passionate about?

I'm most passionate about providing education to all women. Health care is a basic right. I may never be able to provide direct care to a person, or have never met in person, but I can provide knowledge and education to empower to so many women indirectly - and that is amazing!

What makes you feel the most empowered?

We are inspiring and encouraging a future generation of women that are making changes. Every day is a gift and a choice on how I can present myself to encourage others.

About

Hi, I’m Heather. I’m a Certified Nurse Midwife with intent on educating and inspiring others with a vagina. I know each person has unique needs and concerns. With education, I empower people to make informed decisions regarding their body. I also like to normalize the health issues and experiences we have, but are too embarrassed to talk about.
