As a Women's Health and Gender-Related Care Nurse Practitioner (WHNP), my career is devoted to providing unwavering support and care to women and their families. With a decade of experience spanning emergency care to specialist women's healthcare, I've realized that many women require a different approach—a healthcare experience viewed through a feminist lens. The limited time healthcare professionals have in the clinical setting can make it challenging to establish a connection, ask questions, receive comprehensive education, and develop sustainable and holistic health plans for optimal well-being.


At Willful Women, my purpose is to be your trusted women's and gender-related health educator, partner, and coach. I am passionate about equipping you with factual, evidence-based information about your health while offering practical guidance for prioritizing your health and wellness journey through intentional and deliberate steps. With my diverse background as a Registered Paramedic, Registered Nurse, Women's Health Nurse Practitioner, Academic, Researcher, and friend, I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to support you. Think of me as your women's health gal pal, dedicated to helping you unlock your full health and wellness potential through tailored lifestyle changes and the adoption of realistic, sustainable, and positive health-promoting habits. Along this journey, you'll gain a deeper understanding of your mind-body connection and holistic health needs, empowering you throughout your life.


Head over to my instagram to get free weekly women's health education. If you want to work one-on-one, then feel free to reach out to schedule. In our partnership, I promise to provide a safe space where you are the expert on your own life. You will be valued, heard, and encouraged to be your most authentic self. Together, we will nurture growth, facilitate healing, and optimize your overall well-being.
