I've worked with children in different capacities for over 15 years, ranging from a private live-in nanny, to crisis nursery staff, to group home counselor. I'm originally from California, where I earned my BA in English from UC Davis. After college I traveled around the US, and dabbled in social work, green business research, and organic farming. I then re-found my love of birth and the postpartum family through volunteering at a birth center. I moved to Portland in 2012 to pursue my doula career at Birthingway College of Midwifery.
Other activities I enjoy are nature walks, cooking, food preservation, needle crafts, painting, organic gardening, roadtrips, campfires, and of course, talking about babies!
