Doula, Doula Supervisor

Doula Program Coordinator


As the coordinator and supervisor of the Happy Mama Healthy Baby Community Doula Program, I look forward to discussing your birthing needs and helping to match you with a Doula that is a perfect fit for you.


I am a Birth and Postpartum Doula, and a graduate from Towson University (Towson, MD) with a degree in Biology and a dual minor in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, and Bioinformatics (MBIII) and Women Studies. I am currently in midwifery school pursuing requirements to become a Licensed Midwife/Certified Professional Midwife. 


During my research and preparation for birth work, I fell in love with holistic birthing methods. I have been a doula since 2011 and have worked with Happy Mama Healthy Baby Alliance since then. I  have assured and assisted VBAC moms, teen moms, and moms who have opted for a traditional hospital birth atmosphere as well as water birth practices. I have been fortunate to be mentored by some of the very best and established doulas, midwives and OB/GYNs in California. My skills are to efficiently direct your senses from the discomfort of labor via my massaging techniques, touch, and use of sound, and changing of positions to aid in the progression of your labor. I would be delighted to help support your preferences and assist with your emotional, informational, and physical support during pregnancy/ labor and postpartum.


I am expecting my first baby this summer. I am looking forward to being a mom!
