My first experience with childbirth came when I was 6 years old. My brothers and I watched as my mother worked tirelessly to bring my youngest brother Earth side.  My mother’s innate sense of calm and determination was awe-inspiring. It is something I have carried with me through adulthood and helped to form my love and passion for women’s health. 

It wasn’t until my second daughter was born that I decided to pursue birth work. It felt as though everything in my soul was pulling me in this direction. The sheer beauty of pregnancy and childbirth, coupled with my desire to nurture and support expecting families, led me to begin training as a birth doula. Earlier this year I completed birth doula training through DONA International and will be working toward receiving certification. I am delighted and honored to be apart of the Student Doula Collective at New Life Birth Services.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in Human Resource Management from the University of New Mexico and have worked as a Human Resource professional since 2012. In addition to my love for childbirth, I also have a strong passion for nutrition and fitness. 

As a native New Mexican, I’m thrilled to support our local community through empathetic care and support during this formative time!
