Postpartum Doula Faculty

Location: California

I have always been fascinated by birth and babies. Growing up, I thought I would become a teacher or psychologist but never imagined that those two things would essentially meld into me becoming a birth and postpartum doula, and later, a postpartum doula trainer! I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to train over 650 postpartum doulas and to know that these students will go on to positively impact new families. I love teaching and I love supporting my students whether they contact me a week after training or 14 years later. Building these relationships has impacted me greatly.  Additionally, both of my sisters are also in the birth industry so I know it’s in our DNA!

When I’m not doula’ing or teaching, I love my morning cups of coffee while sitting in silence. In the evenings, I love hanging out with my husband, adult children and French Bulldog or getting together with my sisters and friends for some Mexican food and margaritas!
