About Me

First and foremost, I am a mom! I have two young kids, two dogs (one old, one young) two crabs and a flock of chickens. I married my high school sweetheart and live in the amazing state of Colorado. I became a doula after the birth of my son. I wanted to help educate families on how to achieve the birth they want and get partners involved in the birth. I received my training through toLabor in 2009. I have loved photography since high school yearbook where I learned to develop film in the convent with Sister Janet. I am mostly self-taught with a smattering of college classes.

It is true that if you love what you do you will never work a day!
