I am a DONA certified birth doula CD(DONA), Certified Lactation counselor (CLC), Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (LCCE), and a certified Dancing For Birth instructor. I received my DONA training under Kathy McGrath in Pittsburgh, PA. My family came back to our West Texas roots from there in 2015 to raise our daughter near both of our families. I have attended over 300 births and worked lactation and childbirth education for a local hospital since our arrival. I believe "birthing" is my calling and focus most of my time not spent with my family on my career and continuing education. I was raised by a very community minded momma and have been volunteering and participating in community events since I was a child. I also love to bake and enjoy live music, attending dance and theatre performances, eating amazing food and creating craft cocktail menus for my friends' special events.
I started Welcome To Mommyhood, a group for mother's of infants, as a way to build community locally. Our group is for everyone and is donation based. Please join us! Follow the link to the Facebook page to keep up with announcements and events!
