I am a doula because I believe that a healthy community is rooted in healthy and happy moms and
their families. As a doula I hope to bring calm, reassurance, and confidence to your experience of
pregnancy and labor and help you build a strong foundation for your family. Every woman deserves
their birth to be supported, in whichever way she thinks is best for her and her family. I am so happy
to have found myself in this work and am excited to have the opportunity to serve you!
I grew up and went to college in Salt Lake City, Utah and moved to Portland in 2012 with the goal of
broadening my career horizons and living in a community that values local products and
sustainability, holistic practices, and authenticity. I started my journey as a doula in 2015 and have
been practicing with PDX Doulas since 2016. When I’m not working as a doula I am walking my dog,
riding my bike to practice yoga around the city, jogging with friends, reading about women’s health,
working on my garden, and spending time with my family.
