I am a person who finds joy in working many jobs in different fields, whether that be childcare, facilitation, retail, or business ownership. My biggest passion though, is support work. Through compassionate leadership roles and social justice desires, I have always felt a deep need for human connection and support. This desire for human connection is what sparked my initial interest in becoming a Birth Doula. Since my training as a Birth Doula I have thrown myself into every possible learning opportunity surrounding childbirth. I continue to educate myself in childbirth through educating others.
