I am a DONA International trained and certified doula with 20 years of working with youth and families in the non-profit realm.
Serving families in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, I love helping parents realize their strength and ability. I truly believe children are a gift from God and the birthing process is nothing short of a miracle. I know I was created for this beautiful work. Though I have been fascinated with child birth for many years, I never heard of the word doula until Feb 2016,
I have spent two decades working to support healthy families. My career has included working as an after-school program director, healthy relationships/sexual health educator, community connector for an elementary school, homeless shelter co-facilitator and leading teen mission trips.
Originally from Cleveland, OH, I moved to Minneapolis in 2014. I enjoy spending time with others, watching TV /movies, eating good food and relaxing on the beach. My favorite things in life revolve around relationships with others!
In 2017, I trained and certified with DONA International, attended a Spinning Babies training, became a part of Everyday Miracles, joined the Childbirth Collective and attended about 15 births.
In 2018, I have completed my HypnoBirthing Doula Training, re-certified with Red Cross in CPR/First Aid, Holding Space for Pregnancy Loss class, completed Lamaze International Childbirth Education classes and have attended about 15 births.
Every child deserves to be loved and every family deserves the birth experience they desire!
