When Kathya is not catching babies she loves to spend time with her children learning to discover the world through their eyes, playing with her wonderful doggies Chewie and Thor, her kitty Milo, and enjoying her happily ever after with her number one supporter and husband Adam. She loves yoga, bike riding, NPR’s Science Fridays and Splendid Table, experimenting in the kitchen and reading Tuesday's New York Times science edition.
Before starting her journey to becoming a midwife she was in a Medical Magnet school in Yonkers, New York taking various courses including, Diagnostic Cardiology, Anatomy and Physiology I and II, and Medical Terminology. She also joined a specialty club that studied Diabetes.
She eventually moved on in 2004 to Las Vegas, Nevada. This is where she had an awakening during her pregnancy and found her calling in Midwifery. She met her Preceptors at a Birth Year Network meeting where she spoke on her birth at the hospital and was encouraged by them to attend a student midwives meeting. After the meeting and an interview with them she began her journey. Kathya attended well women care, prenatals, births, and postpartum visits with both midwives while completing her studies and learning practical skills with them. In the last few months of her internship she began doing office visits on her own and was proactive at births. Kathya’s evaluation with her Preceptors was in October of 2008 and was approved to start taking clients during the last portion of her education. She worked directly with them for her first 20 births as a primary.
