Associate Director of Programs

I learned about Count the Kicks by watching a Baby Save story on the local news. I was so moved by the story that I approached Janet Petersen, one of the founders of Health Birth Day, to offer my assistance in getting the kick counting message out. As a public health professional, I know the power of prevention and the strength of relationships. As a mother of three, I know the joy and fear that coexist throughout pregnancy. Kick counting is simple, yet powerful. I look forward to helping our organization grow overall, and especially in our work to reduce disparities in maternal health and birth outcomes.
