Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: I started my career as a Massage Therapist in 2011 specializing in Prenatal Massage. I love working on expectant mothers wether it be their 1st or 6th child. The body goes through so much and needs as much TLC as possible.

What led you to become a Doula?: I have had a passion for birth and pregnancy since I was a child! I feel like it’s what I’ve been called to do. My best friend Cait let me be in the room with her when she had her first son and I knew it’s where I needed to be. Being a midwife is something I’ve considered for a long time as well.

I’ve been told I’m nurturing, compassionate and in-tune with people around me

What are your favorite pregnancy/parenting resources?:

What thoughts come to mind when you see a pregnant woman or brand new mom?: I think beauty, strength, miracle, ferocity, valor divine womanhood, joy and love!
