I’m a mama, wife, and Doula with a background in early childhood development and I have a great passion for seeing families grow through community and education.
As the mother of three lively little humans, I’ve bounded through the joys and trudged through the challenges of pregnancy and parenthood. It’s the most rewarding and exhausting experience I’ve ever known.
In early 2012, my family began walking the weary road of perinatal loss with the the death of our second daughter. She was stillborn due to a cord accident at 34 weeks gestation. It has become a deep passion of mine to educate families and communities on the impact of Pregnancy and Infant Loss. I make it a priority to be available for families experiencing losses and to provide resources for help and assistance during these times.
After going through our experiences I wanted to know all I could about pregnancy and childbirth. I began studying at Aviva College for my Perinatal Health Professional certification. I completed course work and practicum in 2013 and my excitement for this work grows everyday.
In our house we strive for a healthy lifestyle. As the homeschooling wife of a high school band teacher, schedules can make that VERY difficult. But we’re learning that it IS indeed possible to live healthfully with limited time and income. My husband calls me a closet hippie and I’m proud to wear that badge.
It is my goal to encourage, educate, learn, and laugh, always. Let’s walk this wild journey together and build a community that we all desperately need!
