Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: I have 15 years professional cooking experience! That background has given me the ability to think on my feet, work with people from all walks of life and I can make delicious meals for growing families

What led you to become a Doula?: When my daughter was born I developed a passion and a strong desire to support families in times of vulnerability, joy and uncertainty

What are some positive comments made about you by other people?:

I’m dedicated, hard working, and kind. I love to laugh and learn new things

What are your favorite pregnancy/parenting resources?: *

What thoughts come to mind when you see a pregnant woman or brand new mom?: I want to hug her, hold her, and feed her! But that would be weird and inappropriate so I refrain. I can't help but at least smile

What is the best gift you can give a new mom (as a Doula)?: Support. And that can mean something different to every parent. Some parents want to sleep. Some will want help with light chores. Some will just need someone to talk to. Others may even want you to hold their baby while they do chores

What is your favorite TV show or movie?: The Simpsons

What is your favorite place to vacation?: Anyplace warm and sunny

What is your favorite food?: Tacos. Cookies. Fried chicken. French fries. Cheesecake. I love food.

What is your favorite way to spend a day off?: With my family. I love to make a big breakfast for my husband and our daughter. We spend lots of time playing at the park. We enjoy watching movies together

Who lives in your house?: I live with my husband, our daughter and our 6 year old dog, Sugar Bear
