I am a 43 year old mother of 2 bright souls and wife of a fantastically supportive husband. In my life before children I was a founding member of a theatre company based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. For 15 years I was constantly engaged in the process of creating, producing and touring devised work with an immensely talented ensemble of theatre artists.
When my greatest creative project to date was born (my first child) the things I learned and experienced in my pregnancy and birth sparked a deep conversation inside me about my path in this life and the possibility of exploring new roads. Adjusting to motherhood was a big challenge for me and it wasn’t until 5 years later, after the birth of my second child, that I was ready to dig in and train to become a doula.
I was (and am) very eager to support women through the process of birthing, having been inspired by my own incredible birth experiences and the wonderful resources now available to women. Empowerment is at the heart of my work, with women and their partners, through prenatal education and the validation that strong, confident support can bring.
