I am a native of Santa Barbara, California. I began attending births for friends and family years ago, and loved everything about being included and involved in welcoming a new life into the world. I have three children, each with their own, very different birth story. Looking back, as a patient, I wasn't aware that I could have been more involved in the decision-making during birth and labor. I just went along with everything, trusting in the doctor's choices. Had I known then what I know now, I would have done things differently. I began my education as a Doula in 2010. I am a trained Birth and Postpartum Doula, Placenta Specialist, Massage Therapist and am continuing my education in Sleep Training and Breastfeeding Education courses. My deepest passion lies in helping others and supporting families through their individual journey.
