ABOUT THE DOULA | My doula journey began after the birth of my daughter. In that experience, I was able to have my dream birthing team that included my loving husband, parents, in-laws, and a dear friend. Their support helped guide me and encourage me through her birth. The experience opened my eyes to how powerful birth can be. I want to provide families with information and tools to help them feel empowered by their own birthing experiences. Outside of my doula work, I am a special education teacher and consultant, serving families with children diagnosed on the Autism spectrum. I feel that the work I do with families in that capacity, definitely coincides someways with birth work. I am a strong believer of self care and making memories. I love dancing with my little one, reading, traveling, spontaneous adventures with my husband, scrapbooking, and trying to make others love giraffes as much as I do.
