Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula ~ Certified Lactation Counselor
I am a birth and postpartum doula, certified through DTI (Doula Trainings International.) I am also a Certified Lactation Counselor - providing support during the beginning, maintenance, and weaning stages of breastfeeding. I am also able to help with common breastfeeding problems and concerns. I have experience working with LGBTQ and adoptive families, as well as families with multiples.
My passion is providing families with a safe, trustworthy, non-judgmental ear and helping families launch into parenthood.
I grew up in the Midwest. I attended Indiana University and received my Bachelor's Degree in 2000. I moved to California in 2007. I live in Marin County, CA, and our family enjoys hiking, camping, making sun tea, planting flowers, and art projects. My young son keeps my wife and me in awe of the world and reminds us to play everyday. I am also a registered veterinary technician, with experience with animals big and small. I am certified in First Aid and CPR for adults, infants, and children.
