About me

I am a Sacramento native - born and raised in Northern California. I earned my BA in English Literature from UCSC in 2017 and am currently studying American Sign Language at Sierra College. 🦋 I have always felt a pull towards birth work and helping people. After spending several years in the grind of an office job, I decided to take a huge leap of faith and answer my true calling of serving families as a Postpartum Doula. ✨ I couldn’t have made a better decision! 🌻
