She currently peer reviews for the Journal of Midwifery and Women’s Health (JMWH) and volunteers for Postpartum Support International (PSI) as newslinks editor.

She has been teaching with FNU since 2007. She enjoys being of service to others, time with her husband, friends and family, meditation and mindfulness practices, reading and writing, film, live theater, traveling, and time in nature.
