I am a doula and educator servicing the Los Angeles, CA area. My background is as an Iyengar yoga instructor specializing in women’s health including yoga for fertility, prenatal yoga and postpartum yoga. I began attending births for my yoga students and acquaintances in my hometown of Memphis, TN in 2009. I had found my calling and pursued training to become a doula. In 2011, my partner and I moved to Los Angeles and I continued supporting families here in the LA area. After serving as a doula for for 5 years, I welcomed my own son in 2014. My love and passion for my doula work continued to grow as I went through the transition to new parenthood myself and realized how much having support and community truly meant.
I currently offer birth and postpartum doula services and childbirth education classes, as well as mentorship for new doulas. I am a trauma-informed practitioner and specialize in working with couples and families that have experienced previous trauma including traumatic birth and loss. I am a life long learner and am consistently endeavoring to learn new methods and tools for supporting the families I work with. A cornerstone of my work is getting to know my clients as individuals so that I can best support them. The way that I work with each family I serve is unique and tailored to their background, needs, and preferences. I consider myself a skillful coach, who is able to help guide families to confidence in making their own choices.
I am a proud member of the Doulas Association of Southern California and deeply honored to have been recognized as their Birth Doula of the Year for 2012, Educator of the Year for 2013, and Doula Mentor of the Year for 2016. I live in Glendale with my husband Lee and son Ezra.
