DONA International trained Birth Doula
Scott (husband) and I
A few things about me:
I love to meet new people over coffee or tea and sharing stories. I enjoy having company over for a homecooked meal with fresh baked cookies for dessert. My husband and I enjoy sharing our special pour over coffee with new people to try.
I get a lot of joy out of games. Here are some of my favorite:
Yard game: KanJam
Board Game: Disney's Villainous
Card Game: Hand and Foot
Video Game: Mario Kart or Wii Sports
Sporadic adventures and exploration are where some of my most valued memories come from. Along with.. being silly (everyone deserves to enjoy being a little goofy sometimes).
Recently I have been participating in disc golf with Scott on the Maryville course. It's been a new way to embrace the outdoors and I've been increasingly excited about it.
All in all, building relationships has to be my favorite part of life. I am a people person but I do appreciate time to recharge. You will likely find me journaling with a good pen, cuddling with a warm blanket, drinking tea, and listening to worship music in the mornings or during recharge time.
*The main thing I do not like would have to be bugs. My family would agree to this truth about me.
why I'm a doula...
A birth can be a deeply treasured memory or a painful one. A birthing person remembers their birth stories in detail for their whole life. After I found out what a doula does, I quickly jumped on board. I wanted to be part of providing positive birth experiences. I felt that there has to be nothing more impactful than to help birthing people and their families to be informed, confident, and supported throughout the process. I want to create a safe space for the family to make positive memories during pregnancy, labor, and during the postpartum period. My passion continues to grow for all things birth the more I learn and experience.
