Katie began her career of birth work while working as a nurse in the Intensive Care Unit at Virginia Hospital Center. She welcomed motherhood in 2009, while working full time as a nurse and was first introduced to HypnoBirthing by her midwife. While an unknown philosophy to her at the time, she pursued HypnoBirthing alongside her husband and after the calm birth of her first child, she felt motivated to share her experience and empower other women. After finishing her HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator training, she soared to pursue her gifts of compassion, support and empowering into the birth rooms and homes of mothers everywhere quickly blossoming into a professional, contemporary Doula. Katie combines her nursing knowledge, her nourishing compassion and her confident skills in empowering mothers and fathers before, during and after the birth of their baby.
She has completed trainings through the HypnoBirthing Institute to become a Certified HypnoBirthing Childbirth Educator as well as a Professional HypnoBirthing Doula. She has completed doula training with Stillbirthday to better support and assist mothers of loss and infertility. She has also completed training through Spinning Babies, Gina Kerby Rebozo, TENS Unit, and more.
She resides in Northern Virginia with her husband of 14 years, Brian and three children, Victoria (9), Chase (7) and Natalia (3 years). She enjoys hiking, reading, weight lifting, homeschooling, scrapbooking, photography, and dates with her hubby.
