About me

I am deeply passionate about advocating for African ​American women amid the maternal health crisis, ​addressing obstetric violence, birth trauma recovery, and ​the impact of trauma on the birthing experience. After ​completing my full spectrum doula training in 2022, I ​took a break in 2023 to navigate traumatic life-altering ​events that inspired the founding of my doula agency ​Pink Noodle which specializes in trauma-informed doula ​care. Currently, I am undergoing training as a birth and ​postpartum doula with DONA International and have ​recently completed my initial training as a Newborn Care ​Specialist. My long-term aspirations include becoming a ​board-certified lactation consultant and a childbirth ​educator. To achieve these goals, I have begun my ​lactation counselor training with the Healthy Children’s ​Project and childbirth education courses with Childbirth ​International. In my spare time i love engaging in my hobbies which ​include : spending time with my cat Ra, drawing, reading, ​building my island animal crossing, squishmallow ​hunting and running my shopify store Pink Noodle!
