Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: Along with being a birth doula, I am also a licensed massage therapist and mother of two children.
What led you to become a Doula?: I've always known I wanted to help people to feel and be their best. I'm a very hands-on person who has always been particularly intrigued by women's health and pregnancy, which is what lead me down my career path as a massage therapist specializing in prenatal care.
