I am blessed with a loving, supportive husband and three wonderful adult sons. Our family is growing once again, and now includes our lovely daughter-in-law. Our sweet golden retriever mix, Ginger, keeps us all grounded. Life is good!
Family is the most important thing in my life, and the reason why I am so passionate about my role as a birth and postpartum doula. It is an incredible honor and joy to provide nurturing support to women, partners, and families during this unforgettable time of transformation and growth.
In addition to my doula services, I love spending time outdoors, gardening, yoga, sewing, gathering with family and friends, and discovering new places right around the corner as well as around the world.
