I’m an experienced Postpartum Doula serving families in and around the Twin Cities since 2018. My purpose is to help and support you, to offer evidence based information when asked, to educate and to counsel. My presence is one of non-judgement, of advocacy for you and your family, and to be your sounding board with whom you run thoughts, ideas, and concerns by, to unpack worries and fears, as well as realize your hopes and goals. When we work together (and even after our time together is complete) I’m available to you 24/7 by text or phone because supporting you is, and always will be, my priority.

  • I am a skilled and professionally trained Postpartum Doula through Modern Doula Education.

  • A Certified Lactation Educator Counselor (CLEC) through University of California SanDiego.

  • A Trauma Informed Professional through Childbirth International.

  • A trained Birth Rights Advocate with Birth Monopoly via Evidence Based Birth.

  • Completed the Compassionate Care course with the University of Dundee

  • Completed the Centre of Excellence Master Herbalist Diploma.

  • I am a member in good standing with the International Alliance of Holistic Therapists.

  • I am also certified in CPR and AED as taught by the American Red Cross.

​I’ve lived in the Twin Cities for two decades. I have two amazing kids who are 20 and 15. I had both babies at home in water with an incredible midwife by my side. Both children nursed until they were preschoolers. I whole heartedly embrace the Midwifery Model of Care, the Doula Model of Care, informed consent and informed refusal. I empower parents with their care and their choices. ​
