I was born, raised, and currently still reside in Chisago City Minnesota which I love as most of my family has migrated to this area. I draw upon a lifetime of caregiving experience. Years of experience as a certified nursing assistant , along with my passion for providing care and support, lead me to become a doula. Never did I think in a million years that this would be my path but I started this journey in September 2015 and have not looked back! I am a very passionate person and love learning everything about birth, postpartum, and placenta encapsulation. I have a deep passion to help women and their families navigate their way through birth and the postpartum time. I couldn't have asked for a better job EVER! DOULAS ROCK!
I've been providing doula care for 15 years for all types of families and in many birthing environments. I'm a DONA-trained doula serving the Twin Cities area from my home in Eagan.
I believe that every mother and her family deserve a pregnancy and birth experience that is true to them. Expecting families are presented with so many rules to follow, so many standards to meet, and so much advice to absorb that they often lose their own identity. My desire as a doula is not to provide the "right" rules or the golden standard, but instead to help your family find its voice and champion that voice throughout your experience.
