Get to Know Me

I'm an east coaster at heart (Mass in the Midwest!) who trained to be a doula in Brooklyn in 2019. The only thing I love more than NYC is my wife, who wanted to leave. I spent several years teaching elementary school and then coaching teachers before making the switch to birthwork full time. 

In high school I happily gave rides to Planned Parenthood in Boston, and I've been passionate about reproductive justice ever since.

My first birth blew my mind, read why I'm a doula here
