Born and raised in Southern California, I moved to New York in 2009 where I earned my degree in Art Education with a New York State teaching certification. I previously worked as a teacher in Brooklyn classrooms as well as the Family Programs department at the Museum of Modern Art. I am excited to have returned to Los Angeles and to be serving families in my hometown!
Becoming a Doula
As an art educator working with families, I always saw the art work as a vessel for providing parents with tools and resources for bonding with their children. I was able to foster amazing moments of joy and discovery that brought these families just a little closer.
This experience motivated me to start working more closely with families to provide tools, resources, and evidence-based information in the moments when their family and support systems are beginning to grow. I wanted to be there at the beginning.
I have the best job in the world. I mean it.
As a postpartum doula, I work to meet you where you are and help to normalize this crazy, amazing time of your life. No judgement. No impositions. My goal is to provide you with information, resources, and support so that you will feel confident in navigating your unique transition to parenthood.
