I have forever been drawn to surrounding and supporting women as they move through life’s transitions. I am awestruck by the beauty of motherhood, inspired by the natural strength of the human body, and fueled by the miracle of birth. After completing my formal doula training, I decided to become educated in massage techniques and attended East West Healing Arts Institute. My hands are strong and busy by trade and also by art; I spend my summer days as a gardener and when not on-call for parents-to-be, I enjoy traveling the world.
