I came about birth work in a rather “round about” way. My husband and I relocated to Albuquerque in 2016 from our home state of Texas, where I taught veterinary students for several years. Shortly after our move, my mom died suddenly and completely unexpectedly. This loss completely rocked my world. I spent several months feeling lost and full of grief. My life felt like it had little purpose. I was in a new state with no friends, no career, and I was learning what life without a mother was like.

After some deep reflection, I started to realize that helping others gave my life purpose. I love teaching, connecting with, and generally supporting other people. I have always been captivated by birth. I grew up watching my three older sisters become mothers and listening to my mom recount her four beautiful birth stories. One day it clicked! I wanted to support families  through life’s biggest transition - birth! I decided to become a birth doula and in May 2017 I trained with DONA International. It was later that I found out my mom had trained as a doula in her twenties, bringing her journey and my own full circle.

In April 2018, I became a Certified Childbirth Educator through Academy of Certified Birth Educators. In addition to birth work, I also work as the Social Media Manager for New Life Birth Services.

Witnessing birth is never something I take for granted. I am forever grateful to the families who allow me to support them through this special time and for the relationships we create along the journey.
