Meet the 2018 Finalists: Rainier Valley Midwives

Posted by SVP Fast Pitch

Meet Tara and our full cohort of innovators at the Final Showdown this Saturday! Don’t wait and purchase your ticket – every ticket helps support grants awarded to the group. Be a part of the change! Check back daily to meet all of our finalists.

Our Mission: We provide exceptional direct care to women and families to improve health outcomes including traditionally under-served communities. Our programs increase job capacity for providers of color and our services are based on community-identified needs.

What inspires you most about the work you do?: I love watching women as they come into their power over their bodies, soul and mind. They trust their instincts, they know their bodies best, and know what is best for their families. Watching a mom snuggle with her healthy newborn in her own bed, keeps me going to continue this fight!

What are you most excited about on November 10th? I’m excited to share our vision all of Seattle! I’m also excited to connect with the other innovators ,and collaborate to build stronger communities.

Tell us a little known fact about you: I was born and raised in the same house in Seattle my whole life, and love raising my son there too.

What are some of your favorite things to do in Seattle or the PNW?: Exploring local parks with my 2 year old son and 15 nieces and nephews. Our favorites are Edmonds City Park/ Marina Beach, Seward Park, Hamilton Park, Jefferson Park, Twin Ponds, Carkeek Park, & Candy Cane Park.

Join us to hear Tara’s story on Saturday, November 10th!  Tickets Available
