I am a natural nurturer. I have spent my entire life in service to others in one form or another. Professionally, I was a nanny for over 17 years before shifting into doula work and pursuing my other certifications in order to help me build a service that could be supportive to people wherever they are on life's journey!
As part of wee welcome doula collective, I am so excited to offer loving support to you wherever you may be on your reproductive journey. I am passionate about providing truly compassionate, empathy driven care without judgment. Your story is your story, and I am here to help you write it your way!
I love to learn and am always adding to my toolbox to be up to date and informed on all things that help me provide the best care possible!
I am a Certified Lactation Educator and Spinning Babies enthusiast! I am trained in trauma informed care and grief/loss support. I am trained in the Full Spectrum of care and will be working on my Childbirth Education Certification as well! I trained for both birth and postpartum support at the Simkin Center and Bastyr University. I also provide Sibling Support. I love to learn! I am also a Certified Life Coach, and an End of Life Doula. Truly Your Whole Life Doula! I am very passionate about serving all peoples but especially my fellow Queer and LGBTQIA+ identifying folks. As a fat identifying person (fat is body tissue not an insult) I am a HAES advocate and love to support my fellow large-bodied birthing peoples. I am also passionate about working towards dismantling the systems that harm our BIPOC family and especially in the reproductive justice world!
Self development is a bit of a hobby of mine, and I am pretty much always enrolled in some course or another. I am a Rom Com nerd from classics like Dirty Dancing to the cheesiest of cheesy Hallmark romances! I am of the Harry Potter generation and am a firm believer that we all have a little of each Hogwarts house in us (I identify as a SlytherPuff.....Hufflepuff dominant)! I am the type of person who loves to understand others through archetypes and associations and find personality types/quizzes fascinating. So if you say your favorite Disney Princess is Moana, your favorite superhero is Black Panther and your Meyers Briggs is INFJ then that tells me a lot about you 🙂
All in all I am the type of person who leads with love! Think Molly Weasley! Mama Bear energy, firm when you need me to be and warm always!
