About me

For over 21 years she has trained with organizations such as ProDoula, DONA, Postpartum Support International, La Leche League & The Matrona. She is also a certified health coach and works with moms and children to help them understand their best nutrition, exercise & lifestyle choices. She has a vast resource of knowledge which she uses to support HCD team and the families she serves, including in-depth training on perinatal mood disorders–such as postpartum anxiety & depression. Her most accomplished element she claims is her family; happily married with 3 grown children whom she loves tremendously.
