About Me



There is nothing more sacred to me than the experience of birth.  To be asked to join a birthing person and their family as they bring new life is the ultimate compliment.  As a doula, I bring reverence and respect for all families, along with strong knowledge of normal birth and a tool bag of comfort measures.  

When a pregnant person has a partner or dear friend who can be by their side, it is my happy role to assist that partner and guide him or her in supporting mom.  In other families mom prefers my one on one support directly.  Some parents strongly desire medical pain management, while others are hoping for a minimal-intervention experience.

 I would be honored to support you throughout your pregnancy and birth, in the ways that best suit you.



I am Mom to two incredible little boys.  Samuel was born in 2012 and Wyatt followed closely after in 2013.  Their births were two of the most incredible and holy experiences of my life.  

I have been a Stay-at-Home Parent, a working parent, a single parent, and a step-parent.  No matter the circumstances, parenting is hands down the most challenging, and most rewarding, role of my lifetime. 

Parents are often forgotten or overlooked in the excitement of a new baby, but they need care and nurturing too.  I am passionate about supporting parents at every stage of their experience - from preconception, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and beyond.  



As a former high school English teacher, I am passionate about learning and about sharing knowledge.  Like most moms, I spent a lot of time researching during my first pregnancy.  Unlike a number of moms, however, my fascination with birth did not end after delivery.    

After spending countless hours chatting the ears off of any friend or relative who would listen, I realized that my teaching background and my intense passion for birth gave me a niche in the world of childbirth education.  I have been a childbirth instructor since 2012, studying and teaching under The Bradley Method, Hypnobirthing, and now Birth Boot Camp.
