I've always been intrigued by the pregnancy and birth processes, women's health, and therapy. Being a doula naturally combines all of those! After I attended my first birth, I was instantly drawn to the prospect of being a birth partner. I love being a doula because it gives me the opportunity to lift up my fellow women, be an ally for women and their reproductive and mental health, and provide a much-needed service for women and their families. I trust and believe that every person deserves a supportive companion before, during, and after their birth.
With over ten years of experience as a preschool and art teacher, I have a deep sensitivity to the emotional needs of young ones. I love working with siblings of new babies to help nurture their natural curiosity of childbirth.
When I am not being a doula, I am an artist and teacher, and I work with the lovely team at Blossom Birth and Family in Palo Alto. I make paper flowers and I am a painter. I love making concoctions in my kitchen like tea and baked goods, and I love spending time with husband, friends, and two cats Elliot and Evelyn.
