Meet Your ProDoula

Background/Experience that you think is beneficial to Doula work: I have been a caregiver - children, friends, family members - for my entire life. I worked as a full time nanny since I was sixteen years old and spent a large amount of that time caring not only for the babies but their parents as well. Supporting families is a passion of mine!

What led you to become a Doula?: Working as a nanny is rewarding but can be isolating. I was looking for a field where I could use all my infant care skills while still working with adults. When I found out about birth work I knew it was the career for me.

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

My clients view me as calm, trustworthy, open, and passionate. They say that I’m easy to talk to and eager to help at every turn.

What are your favorite pregnancy/parenting resources?: Spinning Babies, Evidence Based Birth, The Birth Partner by Penny Simpkin, Wonder Weeks, Birth Without Fear by January Harshe

What thoughts come to mind when you see a pregnant woman or brand new mom?: I immediately think of ways I could support them - even if it’s just holding the door while they push a stroller or giving my seat to a pregnant person.

What is the best gift you can give a new mom (as a Doula)?: Someone to listen to without fear of judgment.

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

What is your favorite place to vacation?: Asheville, NC

What is your favorite food?: Veggie Pizza

What is your favorite way to spend a day off?: Cuddling with my puppy and reading in a hammock!

Who lives in your house?: I live with my parents and brothers and our two cats and dogs!
