She found early on in her training that she enjoys working with pregnant and postpartum clients, and she quickly became passionate about helping perinatal women find the help they need. This led to her idea for her doctorate of nursing practice project: The Sad Moms Club, a podcast dedicated to helping Utah women learn about and connect to the local maternal mental health resources available. She continues to host the podcast today. Additionally, she volunteers on the Postpartum Support International Utah Chapter board as Chair of Community Outreach to further help women in the state. Much of her training and community work has been serving the perinatal population, and she is excited to continue her work with Felicity Women’s Center.
