I am a DONA International trained and certified doula and Childbirth Educator 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.
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.
In 2019, I became an Evidence Based Birth® Instructor.
Every child deserves to be loved and every family deserves the birth experience they desire!
