I am the mother of a teenage son and daughter on the west side of Los Angeles. My background includes social work as well as patient advocacy. I was drawn to postpartum doula work because I believe all families deserve support and care after the birth of a child. This is a time of great transition and families should feel entitled to assurance, advice, care taking, and understanding. In 2019, I trained with Kathrin Auger, a doula since 2007 and a former NICU nurse, as well as 2010 Doula mentor of the year. I am a member of both Doulas of North America and Doula Association of Southern California.
