I was the little girl who spent hours in front of TLC’s A Baby Story. Birth has always captivated my attention, but I came about birth work in a rather “round about” way. I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2012 with a B.S. in Animal Science and I immediately took a job teaching Veterinary Students. It was there that I discovered my love for serving people. Watching my students achieve their goals was my greatest joy.

In October 2016, my husband and I relocated to Albuquerque for his career. I left my job teaching, and took the advice of my former boss and mentor who told me to take time to reflect and pursue what makes me happiest. I knew I had to do something I found meaningful, and that’s when birth work edged its way into my life.

In 2017, I trained with DONA International and I’m currently working towards birth doula certification. With me, I bring empathy, joy, and love to serve families around life’s biggest transition - birth!
