I am a CAPPA trained Postpartum Doula and board member of the Portland Doula Association. Currently my focus is on daytime support, postpartum planning and babywearing education. Helping new families flourish and find their footing so they can confidently move forward as a new unit is dear to my heart. I am excited to always be learning and deepening my skills to bring practical and emotional support to parents.
Why me? I am passionate about providing direct service to families and I am comfortable with all family structures. What lights me up is feeding people, seeing new parents relax with a baby on their chest, supporting a birthing person’s new body and processing birth stories.

I have worked with families for many years in various settings and after starting my own I kept coming back to the idea of the beginning. Everyone deserves a strong start and it is my honor to be part of a family’s team to have the best beginning possible.
After earning a B.S. in Sociology and serving in Americorps I have almost exclusively worked with families…as a nanny, in home care provider, day center attendant and CNA. I have also enjoyed working in maternity and baby retail and birthing two children along the way. I am passionate about providing quality service to families wherever you are on your journey.
