A former techie from the Healthcare and Insurance industries, I found my calling as a postpartum care provider when I witnessed the lack of postpartum support for moms after the birth of my son. I am a CAPPA trained postpartum doula, a mom and constant learner about various aspects of breastfeeding and newborn care. My mission is to help new moms and parents thrive by providing them tools and support to navigate parenthood.

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and an Associated Montessori International teaching credential. I am also an Infant Care Specialist and experienced postpartum doula. I trained as a midwife in Belize where I lived for many years. I was a birth and wellness advocate, childbirth educator, and postpartum doula in my community too. I aim to provide newborns with the building blocks to form strong loving attachments, healthy sleep habits, and a routine that helps both babies and family thrive. When following baby’s cues and establishing a routine around the needs of baby and family, they are all set up for success for years into the future.

I (she/her) have been working with families in various capacities since 2015. My role as a Cornerstone trained doula is steeped in authenticity and understanding. As a mixed-race, queer birth worker, I center my trauma-informed approach to each family’s unique needs.

I started my career as an ESL Teacher and as a Recreation Leader for babies and toddlers. From there, I realized how much I loved working with the little ones. I had the opportunity to be a Nursery Assistant taking care of 0-6 babies in a daycare for underprivileged children and it was an amazing experience where I learned a lot about newborns. Since then, I’ve been Specializing in Newborns and in supporting new families.

I’m a birth and postpartum doula as well as newborn night specialist. I’ve been caring for newborns for over 5 years and in the recent two years I’ve decided to become a doula to be able to provide extra support for families as it’s a very crucial time. I’m also a mother to two girls ages 5 and 2 years old. I’m as well currently studying online to become a Registered Nurse specializing in labor and delivery. I practice social distancing and get regular Covid tests and vaccinated.
