I began my doula journey September 2015 when I took my birth doula training. I took my training at the Simkin Center at Bastyr University with Carrie Kenner, Sharon Muza and Kim James. I’m also a trained postpartum doula through CAPPA and am working towards certification with NAPS. I love all things birth and family. I have 10 years previous work experience with children as a nanny, nursery care provider, and daycare worker. I also have a good understanding of the human anatomy from working in physical therapy and occupational therapy offices. I have my BS in Biomedical Science from Lynchburg College in Virginia. I love to spend my off time hiking and camping and spending time with my husband and our spoiled pets. I am in the process of volunteering with PALs.
