Meet the team

Chrisi grew up on the outskirts of a small midwestern town in South Dakota. For as long as she can remember, she has always been drawn to helping others and has always had an admiration for the beauty and sacred nature of life including pregnancy and new beginnings. Her fascination with the design and efficiency of the human body led her to pursue her original studies in pre-medicine. She attended the University of South Dakota and completed a double Bachelor’s degree in Biology and Spanish in 2009.

While attending undergraduate school, Chrisi worked as an EMT providing emergency healthcare services to her local community.  Although she learned a lot from the experiences she encountered in the field, she decided that she wanted to shift the focus of her future studies to emphasize the prevention of disease and natural healing of the human body.

Shortly thereafter, Chrisi’s adventurous spirit awakened and she decided to move to San Diego. Moving to the west coast further exposed Chrisi to an array of holistic options for healthcare and she fell in love with the art, science, and philosophy of chiropractic. While attending chiropractic school, her passion for helping pregnant moms continued to grow. Chrisi became a Board Certified Doctor of Chiropractic in 2015. Upon graduation, her desire for more knowledge in prenatal care led her to pursue a two-year post-doctorate program from the Academy of Chiropractic Family Practice. During the program and throughout her clinical experiences as a prenatal chiropractor she was exposed more and more to the midwifery model of care and once again felt a thirst to learn more about pregnancy and birth.

While continuing to work as a chiropractor, Chrisi decided to pursue a degree in midwifery. She joined San Diego Midwife as a student in 2018 and completed her clinical work in both homebirth and multiple birth center settings. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Midwives College of Utah and became certified by the North American Registry of Midwives and licensed by the Medical Board of California in 2021.

Today she enjoys continuing working with moms and babies to help them restore a state of optimal balance and function while helping them to reach their pregnancy and birth goals. She specializes in using safe, effective and gentle techniques to achieve balance in the body and she loves incorporating the wisdom of chiropractic and midwifery together to better serves her pregnant moms!

Chrisi is grateful that her journey through healthcare was not a linear path. She has picked up invaluable trainings, techniques and experiences along the way that have shaped her into a well-rounded healthcare provider. She is passionate about supporting and empowering women and it warms her heart to be of service to her community.
