Postpartum Doula, Reiki Practitioner
Hey there! I'm originally from the Midwest, but I've lived in several places throughout my life, including China and Armenia. In the past, I've worn several hats in the field of education, including: librarian, first grade teacher, and special education paraprofessional. I come from a large family with several younger siblings, so I am used to being around and working with children and infants. I also have a 1-year-old daughter, whom without, I never would have found my calling to become a postpartum doula and reiki practitioner. There is a special place in my heart for serving postpartum families because I know how uniquely vulnerable becoming a parent is. I was fortunate enough to have several resources available when I needed support during the newborn stage. Additionally, my husband is in the military, so I understand how important it is to build a village wherever we go, especially when he is out to sea. I want to make sure all families have a chance to feel connected, educated, cared for, and empowered wherever they are in their prenatal or postpartum journey.
