Certified Birth Doula, Perinatal Peer Support, and Artist

If I had to pick a theme song for myself, it would be "Short Skirt Long Jacket" by Cake

 

My family and I moved to Tacoma in 2015, and I must say we love it here.  It's a great place to raise our 4 kids, and we enjoy a little night life.  We are a short drive away from the mountains, the ocean, the big city, and small towns.  I love variety, and the South Sound has a little bit of everything!

As an artist, I was taught to see beauty everywhere.  I carry that perspective in my heart and through my birth work in my belief that the "right" way to give birth will look very different for every family.  I am here to support you in your choices and make sure that you have what you need to feel safe and secure.
