~ About Me ~

When I was 10, my first cousin was born. I stayed with my aunt all summer and had the best time playing mommy and tending to the new member of my family. During the next four years, I had two more cousins, and I loved watching my aunts bellies gets bigger and feeling tiny babies move.

I have always been fascinated by pregnancy, and have a Bachelors degree in Human Development: Conception through Adolescence.

I work at NOVA Natural Birth Center during the day, where I also help with births as a Midwife Assistant. As a doula, I tend to moms having home, birth center, and hospital births.

I am so fortunate to live my passion and have this career of helping strong moms bring beautiful new humans into the world.

One thought on “About Me

  1. I agree…having the joy of growing four babies–two at once, and birthing them was the best joy of my life–as was nursing them all for over 7 years!
