I understand that pregnancy and childbirth are normal, natural processes. When a child is born so to is a mother, and every woman deserves the opportunity to experience her birth, her way. I trust the wisdom and strength of a birthing woman, and feel that all women deserve to be informed, supported, and empowered as they write their birth epic.

I have experienced first-hand the transformative power of the birth process. Today, I am Mom to a happy, active one-year-old who is a constant reminder of the beautiful simplicity in this world. My teammate-for-life, my husband, is the steady calm upon which our family floats. I enjoy outdoor adventures, connecting with nature, cooking, spending time with my family, swinging kettle bells and movement meditation. Wellness starts from within, and I believe in taking care of myself so that I can be there for my family and the families I serve.

My birth doula training was completed with a certified DONA trainer and I am working towards certification through DONA International.
