Labor Doula & Childbirth Educator Faculty
Debbie began learning about birth in 1996 when she became involved in the local Houston birthing community. She believes that it is the most precious and sacred of honors to be invited to care for a woman and her family during their birthing time. Debbie is a doula in private practice and has been privileged to attend over 350 births in many homes and birth centers and over 30 hospitals. Her work has taken her places she never expected to go, including becoming a radio show host! Debbie regularly guest hosts Whole Mother on the local public radio station. The show covers a variety of topics important for parents and is a terrific source for hearing positive birth stories. Debbie certified as a childbirth educator, designed and developed the curriculum for an innovative, interactive childbirth class and began offering classes in 2001. She is proud that many local midwives refer exclusively to her classes and that even dads report enjoying the classes! Her minor in training and development and experience as an ASL interpreting mentorship program manager prepared her for mentoring doulas informally in her community. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to join CAPPA faculty to train a new generation of confident, professional doulas. Debbie is proud to be the mother of two amazing formerly breastfed and homeschooled young adults.
