I'm a mom, former collegiate athlete, volleyball coach, certified strength coach and now a birth doula. I also spent the last 10+ years in nonprofit development fundraising for amazing causes both local to Boston and international, serving communities around the world. Above all else, I love spending time with my family. We love the outdoors, staying active, get to the beach as much as possible, enjoy the mountains and leaf peeping, binging Netflix, and dancing to the latest Disney soundtrack.

The Longer Version

In college I had the opportunity to volunteer for an incredible organization that builds clean water systems for remote, rural villages in Ghana. I was boots on the ground building relationships with community leaders and helping to establish a new water source that would be completely women run. This experience changed my life and influenced my decision to pursue a career in the space of helping others. For the last ten years, I worked in fundraising for several amazing nonprofits - women’s empowerment causes in Central America, a local program supporting Boston Public School students, and a startup that uses the power of yoga and meditation to build community and promote healing for those impacted by traumatic brain injury. Most recently, I worked in donor advancement managing mid-level programs for international humanitarian relief organizations. Within that time I also coached volleyball at the high school and college level, and received my 200HR yoga teacher certification to deepen my connection and understanding for the practice.

The moment I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, Laila, I hit the books. I wanted to learn everything I could about pregnancy and birth so I could make informed decisions about how to best take care of myself, my growing baby, and achieve my ideal birth. I felt so empowered by the knowledge I gathered, and quickly realized that the way labor and birth is depicted in the media is wildly inaccurate. Women have been birthing babies since the beginning of time, led intrinsically by their bodies, surrounded by a community of people that support them and the physiological process. I decided that I would approach my daughter's birth with this mentality, and if nature threw us curve balls, as birth can sometimes be unpredictable, we would adjust and work through it. I was fortunate to have both my girls at a birth center in a joyful, calm, and supportive environment surrounded by people I trust.

It became clear what my true passion was and I could no longer ignore this strong pull to support others the way my birth partners had supported me. Once Emilia was born, I left my development career to be a stay-at-home mom and pursue becoming a doula.

I'm professionally trained through DONA International, I draw on my own personal experiences with birth, my knowledge and experience with functional training, and my continued education through Spinning Babies and the Body Ready Method. I provide non-judgmental, physical and emotional support, and a loving, calming presence. As a doula I am not a medical professional and can't provide clinical advice, but I can make recommendations and provide resources that are evidence based. I strive to strengthen the dynamic of my birthing families, filling in the gaps where needed, while providing my birthing person with unconditional attention, respect and support. In the very least, I hope my presence provides comfort and ease to the birthing person.

There are many ways for me to support prenatally and during labor, and I'm happy to figure out what is right for you. Please contact me with any questions. I look forward to connecting!
