About Me
I have lived in Portland for 15 years. My husband and I have been married for almost ten years and we have two children. I have a degree in social work and some graduate work in mental health counseling. Prior to becoming a doula, I worked at a college with students with disabilities. When I am not with my clients, I love being a mom to my two children, and I ride my bike, kayak, knit, or ignore my dishes while I catch up on tv shows.

I look forward to getting to know you!
