My Story

Let me tell you a few things about Myself

I am a wife, mother of 5 beautiful children, friend, sister, daughter, and a disciple of Christ. I’ve lived all over the United States, and spent some time in Chile as a missionary, but my family has lived in the Springs for 22 years. I have a bachelor’s degree in English. I am a trained cosmetologist, and a trained doula. One of my passions is helping women in whatever phase of life they may be in. I remember being an overwhelmed young mother, a confused mother of teens, and now I am a peaceful mother of adults and almost-adults. Because of my own family experience, I am also devoted to helping families be successful right from the very start. Perhaps I want to help others avoid the mistakes I made!

Being a doula is a calling for me, a natural extension of my own mothering. As a mother, I’ve learned to be patient, kind, caring, and empathetic, and most of all REAL.

I am an avid cyclist, always looking for the next cycling challenge. I also like to knit, crochet, and read, and watch British movies and TV shows. One of my favorites is Call the Midwife.

I look forward to getting to know you better and making you part of my family circle.

My Approach

I am honest. I don’t sugar-coat reality. Pregnancy, labor, and life after baby comes can be tough. I want to prepare you with information and skills I’ve found vital for success in my own journey and from my training.

I will help you find the answers to your questions and concerns. I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I can direct you to someone who will know more than I will.

I am deeply intuitive and I rely on that intuition to guide my approach to helping you.

I will ask a lot of questions.

I will listen to your answers.

I will be present with you and your family.
