I am a mom, a queer woman, a dancer, a community organizer, a feminist, and a trained doula. 

I trained with Michelle L'Esperance at Warm Welcome Birth and am currently pursuing my certification through her Training and Mentoring Program.

I came to this work through my own experience with the birth of my daughter. During my pregnancy and birthing, I felt powerful like no other time in my life. My doula helped me cultivate self-confidence and a calming environment that made my birthing a beautiful experience. Just as my doula helped me, I want to share my knowledge with others and help them find that strong person within themselves.

I am committed to working with to-be-parents of all walks of life, including LGTBQIP families and people of all income levels.
