Research Services

My expertise centers around improving the experience of perinatal care for all people - with a focus on addressing complex systemic issues that directly impact personal and community health. Informed by Black and brown feminists -- critical feminist theory and reproductive justice theory --  guide all aspects of my approach.  I hope to use my extensive methodological training and privilege to create greater depth and understanding of the healing potential of care and the harmful impacts of capitalism and patriarchy. I choose to work on projects that are oriented to create equity and justice for historically minoritized communities. I am also committed to centering midwifery care as a radical profession that, with reckoning and reclamation, can serve to provide authentic person-centered, relational care to childbearing people and families.
