About me

Hello! I am a trained Newborn Care Specialist (NCS) and Postpartum Doula in the Portland, Oregon area. I have been working with infants and toddlers for over three years. Formerly, I was a graduate student studying amphibian diseases and skin microbiomes. I love the work I do because it facilities community-building and equitable childcare and education; two topics I am passionate about!

Service introduction

Hello! I provide newborn care (sleep, eating, development), sibling care, or parental care! Typically I help in household organization, food preparation, and taking care of baby when you need a break! When I'm not a NCS or Doula, I'm a nanny for toddlers (12-36 months old) developing curriculum and activities to promote skills and development.
