More About Me

My own health journey has consisted of ALL the phases a woman goes through including pregnancy and adjusting to life with newborns, toddlers,  and my postpartum body and emotions. Entering perimenopause was the hardest and most confusing time for me. As a nurse, I realized that few medical professionals have expertise or training in this challenging time of life and I struggled with finding someone to help me deal with all that I was feeling physically, mentally, and emotionally. Now in postmenopause, I am eager to provide the evidenced based and accurate information I had searched for.

Being a Mama Coach blends all my training and background  and I am very excited to support you and your family. As your coach, I will walk alongside you with no judgement and empathy in whatever stage you are in.  I will provide useful and current education, as well as listen to you, as we create solutions…together!

The Mama Coach Mission Statement

To guide women and families through every stage of their journey by providing evidence-informed education infused with non-judgmental support, compassion, and empathy. 

our vision




Our job as healthcare professionals is to listen to your priorities and goals as our client.  We will walk beside you and share in your challenges and your triumphs, and we promise to support you with empathy, compassion, and respect.


As you move through your journey, certain stages can feel overwhelming at times. We value creating a shared community, online and in our cities, where you are always welcome.

diversity & inclusion

We support all families — as we believe every family is completely unique and deserves access to quality support.  We support all women.  We will continue to learn and listen, ensuring our brand is thoughtful as well as inclusive.


You can expect us to provide you with evidence-informed information in a professional manner.  As healthcare professionals, we will treat you as unique, provide individual assessments, and determine the best plan of care to meet your educational needs.

frequently asked questions

Good question!  We are called The Mama Coach because years ago, when Carrie’s first boy was very small, she often wondered out loud to herself, “Where is my Mama Coach?” and “I need a Mama Coach!”.  Carrie searched and searched for the kind of support she was looking for, and realized there was a need for qualified support for new families.  Now that Carrie is going through her own journey into perimenopause, she has realized yet again the lack of qualified support for women and has set out to change that by launching a Women’s Health division within The Mama Coach brand. 

We recognize our name may give the impression we only serve moms; however, we will continue to work and learn to ensure our messaging is clear – all people are welcome here.  Women carry a heavy load and they do it with grace.   All people deserve support, and The Mama Coach is the answer you’ve been searching for.

We do not just support moms; our Women’s Health division will help ALL folks.  Everyone is welcome here and we are committed to providing you with quality support, no matter your sex assigned at birth, your current identified gender, and whether you have had children or not.  We are ready to hear your story and will ask and use the language you feel most comfortable with during our assessment and consultation.

We get asked this one all the time.  As Registered Nurses, having merely one method does not align with how we were trained in school to utilize the nursing process.

The Nursing Process is defined as, a “systematic approach to care using the fundamental principles of critical thinking, client-centered approaches to treatment, goal-oriented tasks, evidence-based practice (EDP) recommendations, and nursing intuition.  Holistic and scientific postulates are integrated to provide the basis for compassionate, quality-based care” (*1).  

Simply put, we will assess your child using our nursing training to determine the best way to help your family reach their goals, walking beside you all the way.  You can choose us with confidence, knowing you have picked the most qualified resource to support your family’s journey.

Yes.  As Registered Nurses, we have years of training on where to access credible guidelines and information. All of our programming is based on extensive research from credible sources.

As Registered Nurses, it is our professional obligation to manage client records and confidential information properly.  We use an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) that is compliant throughout North America.  Even though we share the same brand, we are all independent Registered Nurses with our own private practices. As such, we each have our own EMR that is private and secure. We do not share EMR or client information between one another without consent.

My services are not currently covered under private insurance but are covered and paid with HSA or FSAs.
