Hey! I'm Chloe.
I attended my first birth when I was 17, and I've been in awe of female physiology ever since. My freshmen year at NMU, I dual enrolled at a massage therapy school two hours away, where I was able to address my own issues of chronic migraines, and reset patterns after years of being a dancer. I set out with the intention to use my anthropology degree to go to Bastyr University, and become a Naturopathic Physician with an emphasis in Midwifery. I'd then travel the world studying birth culture to bring back home for better woman care.
I fell pregnant with my son at 20, and finished up with a degree in Sociology instead. While this derailed my plans, I was fortunate enough to pick up the grassroots version of my dream, and what a blessing! By being fluent in different forms of bodywork, I can witness and address the different needs of your body. I also have the privilege of more quality one-on-one time. The best part? I can wear whatever I want.
I’ve traveled all over the country to study with some of the biggest pioneers in women’s health. While some techniques I’ve learned were recently developed by their creators, others bits have been passed down from generation to generation of midwives and women. I’ve been lucky to learn alongside nurses, midwives, physical therapists, medical doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors, lactation consultants, doulas, mothers, and other bodyworkers, who have all added valuable clinical experience and anecdotal evidence to each lesson.
In my personal life, I like hanging with my family, talking about lady stuff, and Feng Shui. I also like coming up with ideas for my husband to make in the garage, parallel playing with my son, and trying to plan out my friends lives for them. I come from a long line of storytellers, and there is nothing I like more than a good story. I’m super sensitive, so don’t get weirded out if you tell me a painful, or beautiful, story and you see my eyes start to water. I've got big feelers.
