A trained and certified doula, educator, first responder, and nurse, I have worked in schools, hospitals, halfway houses, and community programs with people of all ages. It was not until I had my own child, and then another, that my interest in working solely with new families grew. After eight years of intensive hospital nursing experience and ten years in practice as a certified lactation educator, I became a doula so that I could provide real, hands-on help to parents by sharing what I have learned over the years. There is just nothing else like being close to the moving experience that is birth, to leave the hospital or home of a new family knowing I have contributed to their new lives.
I am happy to work with families of all cultures, life styles, economic backgrounds, and gender expression.
