Elliott Leslie, LM CPM (she/her)
Elliott Leslie (nee Tillmann) has spent much of her life volunteering with various organizations, beginning at the age of ten with the local Headstart program on an Air Force base in Grand Forks, ND. Her years of volunteer work eventually brought her to working as a volunteer doula both with Seattle based Open Arms and with the Honduran organization Dar a Luz. From there, her love for birth work was cemented and her path to midwifery swiftly followed. Elliott also studied at the University of Washington where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in sociology with a focus on gender, class and racial equity. She has been active in the Midwives Association of Washington State (MAWS) since 2017 and currently sits on the Board of Directors as acting secretary.
Elliott can also be found practicing and teaching yoga, doing crossword puzzles, and canning and preserving the bounty of her mini-farm.
