Hello! I am a mother of 4, partnered with Levi. I began my informal doula work as a teen with my mom, who had babies when I was 10, 12 and 14 years old… hah! I had my first child at 21 and quickly realized the huge gap in care during postpartum. I began reading everything I could get my hands on about mindful parenting and nutrition and community care, but I know I have a lot more to learn. Training with CAPPA was a huge culmination of over a decade of pregnancy, breastfeeding, and postpartum experience first hand, which created a lot of personal passion for better care models and options for everyone.

Throughout my 20’s and early 30’s I’ve attended many births of friends and family, often as a birth photographer or for emotional support. I noticed that in my friends and family’s postpartum it brought me so much joy to be a part of their recovery and nourishment. I’ve spent many hours in homes giving emotional support and nourishment and look forward to many more years of giving this care more formally as a CAPPA postpartum doula.
