Owner & Registered Midwife

Joy's Message

My journey into owning a multi-disciplinary Wellness Group started with midwifery.

In 2004, I became a certified DONA Doula and began volunteering with a Doula Group supporting teen mothers who would have otherwise been alone for their births.

In 2005, I started training at McMaster University in the Midwifery Education Program.  I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Health Sciences in Midwifery and started working as a Registered Midwife in Ontario.

In 2010, my family and I moved across the country to Abbotsford, BC.  And in 2011, I opened Chilliwack's first Midwifery practice, Cheam Midwifery.  

In 2017, I expanded my midwifery practice to include a multi-disciplinary team of like minded health professionals. Cheam Wellness Group is a health clinic with Naturopathic Doctors, Chiropractors, Acupuncturists, Pelvic Health Physiotherapy, Counselling and Massage Therapy. 

I continue to be passionate and in awe of everything related to the childbearing years of a woman's life. I am so fortunate to work in a profession that inspires me everyday.  It is a great honour to walk along side women at such a pivotal point in their lives.

I've recently returned from South Sudan where I worked as a Midwife with Doctor's Without Borders. I am dedicated to working as a Humanitarian and giving back to vulnerable populations. 

When I am not catching babies or managing Cheam Wellness Group you can find me hanging out snowboarding, wake boarding, water skiing and hiking. I also practice yoga daily.
