Years of experience as a teacher, sex & consent educator, and nanny, has lead me down the seamless path into full spectrum doula work. I am certified as a birth and postpartum doula through Cornerstone Doula Training's in Oakland, CA. My professional philosophy focuses on natural support for labor, making room for emotional, physical, and spiritual expression of all kinds, and meeting you where you are at. I want to support you in the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum journey that you are looking for. I am queer, ethically non-monogamous, and put the highest value of importance on informed consent and clear communication. When I'm not providing support, I love to read, write, and snuggle with my two rescue chihuahuas.
