About / Bio
A lifetime of being “one who serves” through my work in the business sector, non-profit sector, through social justice advocacy, volunteer work and family nurturing optimally prepares me to take on the role of doula (Greek: woman who serves, servant woman.) My satisfaction comes from assisting others achieve their desired outcomes. I am sensitive to your vision and serve you without my own agenda, to support you through labor and delivery. Birth is the hardest work you ever do in your life. Having a trained labor coach and professional continuous labor support is shown to improve birth satisfaction outcomes. My goal is to listen to you, help you find your voice and connect you and your partner more deeply.

In addition, as a postpartum doula during your fourth trimester, I’ll draw on my experience, wisdom and training to foster strong family bonding, increase your confidence as a new mother, and offer practical support in feeding, sleeping and household organization.

When I’m not supporting families, my greatest joy comes from lingering around the table with family and loved ones after cooking a delicious and nutritious meal. I enjoy training my doggy, spending time with my husband, two daughters and their partners. Working out and being physically fit gives me the energy to accompany you throughout your labor and delivery. You’ll find me at as much live theater as I can squeeze into my calendar (and budget.) I strive imperfectly to lead a life of integrity and authenticity and gently forgive myself when I fall short. My days begin with a walk along Lake Michigan to greet the sun and set an intention. I look forward to hearing from you and how I can serve your family.
