Postpartum Doula (DONA)

In my early twenties, I experienced a life-changing moment when I held newborn twins for the first time. It was then that I discovered my passion for working with children, and my admiration for babies and their incredibly strong parents grew immensely. This experience inspired me to pursue a degree in child development during my college years.

After completing my studies, I had the incredible opportunity to work as a nanny for infant twins and their 2-year-old sibling throughout their early childhood. I cherished every moment of this role until the birth of my own daughter. Becoming a mother opened my eyes to a whole new world of learning and understanding, further strengthening my dedication to helping parents navigate through this incredible life-changing experience.

As a Postpartum Doula, my focus is on nurturing a calm and peaceful environment, allowing parents to bond with their babies while also ensuring their needs are met.

I find immense joy in supporting families during those sacred and special first months. My goal is to bring knowledge and compassion into their homes, creating a space where they feel heard and cared for.

With over two decades of childcare experience as a Nanny, Doula, and Mother, caring for others has become my true passion. Outside of my work, I love spending quality time with my family and friends, and I find relaxation in listening to audiobooks and podcasts, taking long walks, and expressing myself through painting.

I cannot emphasize enough the importance of prioritizing mental health, and I dedicate myself to fostering that within both myself and the families I work with. Providing a safe and supportive space for finding balance and peace is one of my highest priorities because I truly believe that their health and happiness matter.
