About Me

My first introduction to Doulas was in 1995 at the birth of my daughter.  

The doula arrived at my bedside as part of a volunteer hospital service.  

Her gentle encouragement and support helped my husband and I 

through a long, difficult labor.  When she was born, I was so overcome with joy 

that I knew at that moment I was going to be a doula and help women achieve that same amazing feeling.  Within a year, I quit my corporate job and was working towards my new goal.  

I became a Nationally Certified Doula thru Doulas of North America (DONA)and continued my education by studying midwifery with Elizabeth Davis of Heart and Hands.  

I had my second baby, then became a Certified Childbirth Educator from the Association of Labor Assistants and Childbirth Educators (ALACE).

In 2006, I began my career withKaiser Permanente as their Childbirth Educator and Newborn Care Instructor& in 2014 I completed training as a certified Hypnobabies Hypno-doula where I continue to serve our birthing community.

It would be an honor to have you join the 100's of families I have supported over the past 21 years and help you through the most wonderful moment in your life.
