ABOUT THE DOULA | I am a full-time doula attending 3-4 births each month. I am passionate about helping women and their birth partners experience their best birth no matter their preferences for labor. As a former athlete, I can offer a hands-on approach; I love an active birth! After being home full time with my children for many years and then learning how rewarding it can be to serve women in a retail/customer service role, I felt called to serve them through birth work. I live in Westerville with my husband, Craig. We have three wonderful children: two girls, who are 18 and 19, and a 23-year-old son who made us grandparents! When I'm not attending births, I enjoy reading, gardening, kayaking, and walking my dogs.
