Daytime Postpartum Support

Nighttime Postpartum Support 

I discovered my passion for supporting mothers and children while working at an Ob/Gyn office in
Northern California. This experience inspired me to pursue a career dedicated to assisting growing
On the path where I am today, I started my working part-time as an Early Childhood Educator at a child
development center. Recognizing my potential, the director of operations offered me a full-time
position. Over the course of more than 20 years, I gained valuable experience nurturing and teaching
children from infancy to first grade, eventually transitioning into the field of postpartum doula work.
My educational background includes a B.A. in Family Studies, Consumer Science with an emphasis in
Nutrition, along with certifications in Early Childhood Education, Postpartum Doula training through
ProDoula, and a Baby Signs® Independent Certified Instructor.
Born in San Francisco, CA, I later moved to San Diego for over 10 years before seeking a change of
scenery and settling in Northern Virginia on the East Coast. In my free time, I enjoy outdoor activities,
cooking, baking, dancing, watching movies, and engaging in sports such as football, basketball, and
baseball. Additionally, I cherish spending quality time with my family, friends, and FaceTiming with my
wonderful niece and nephew.

Newborn Baby

“Thank you very, very much for your works as a postpartum doula over the past several weeks. We are so grateful for the ways in which you helped us move through this beautiful but challenging period of our lives. From cluster feeding to introducing bottles to numerous diaper changes, you cared for our baby with so much kindness. On your first night with us the soup you made truly helped us believe we could make it through these newborn days--it was so nourishing and warm. Thank you again for all the ways you cared for us. ”
