At a very young age I took a true love and passion in caring for babies. I was so fascinated with the growth and development of pregnancy, birth and infancy. Being a seasoned mother of four I feel confident that continuing my passion journey with newborns and their families is exactly what my purpose and calling is. Totaling over 30 years experience as a certified licensed aesthetician, massage therapist, postpartum doula, newborn care specialist and professional nanny.

Newborn Care Specialist
As a Postpartum Doula, Newborn Care Specialist and Lactation Educator I greatly enjoy offering my services all over the US and internationally. I am a 24hr live in support to your family so we can establish a great routine for your baby. I can help you in your home through the first weeks and months with the adjustment of bringing home a new baby. Having live in help allows you around the clock care but also a support for your entire family. I enjoy working alongside mom and dad educating, teaching and being an overall resource for you. I greatly enjoy helping engage your other children with your new baby. I was a Nanny for 13 years for all aged children before focusing exclusively with newborns. Also, traveling is a real pleasure of mine. My experience includes working with several families in many parts of the country and also traveling with them on vacation, 2nd homes, international travel, flying private, resort stays, city living and packing for these adventures. I hope to be a real asset for you and your family should you need someone to live in or travel with you!
Traveling Newborn Care Specialist
Giving birth is a life changing experience, and as a doula, my wish for you is to have the most positive experience possible through unconditional emotional, physical and informational support.
There is no substitute in meeting and getting to know your doula as it is for me to get to know you and your desires. I am passionate about my work and take a great deal of pride in the strong bonds I develop with my expectant mothers and fathers. Working with a culturally diverse community is a very rewarding experience. My goal is to provide genuine heartfelt care as well as knowledge- based assistance to those who are welcoming a new life into the world.
I can adjust most birth plans to be customize to your liking.
To date I have delivered well over 315 babies and still counting. Whether you are having a natural/ vaginal birth, epidural assisted, or C-Section, every birth has needs met by a qualified doula and her associates.

My life as a writer and storyteller gives me a unique perspective on being a labor and delivery doula—I want every birth story to be a happy one. I fell in love with the doula experience with my own pregnancies, when I learned first-hand what a difference having a doula could make during labor and delivery. As a mother of three daughters—two of them twins—I know every mother has a unique vision of birth, and I’m here to support you in having the birth you want. I have experience with un-medicated birth, caesarean birth, water birth and more. Let me be a part of a story you will tell for the rest of your life.
