Who I am as a doula:

I am client centered. Meaning I recognize that the client is at the heart of their healthcare- they hold all the power and control, especially when it comes to decision making. My focus as a doula is to provide as much education, validation, and support to the people who have entrusted me to be a part of their health care team. I also bring my passion for reproductive justice, health equity, and health promotion into every aspect of my work. Advocacy on an individual level and educating organizations on a systemic, expansive basis is the bedrock of my birthwork. As a nurse I hope to expand my knowledge, abilities, and platform, as well as my capacity to engage with my community, in a meaningful and impactful practice. When I’m not working, doing schoolwork, or raising 7 children, I like to perform on stage - burlesque, theater, choirs-I’ve done it all.
