I have always felt a calling towards caring for mothers and babies. I founded Mighty Mama to finally live that calling.
I have been surrounded by babies since I was a child. My mother was a NICU nurse growing up and I loved to visit her in the unit. When I was old enough I began volunteering in the NICU and eventually began planning to go into the Peace Corps in an attempt to reach under-serviced pregnant women & babies in other parts of the world.
I chose to stay and get my degree instead, which lead to a husband, a career in musical theater performing in NYC & then children... so much for the peace corps!
Service to pregnant mothers & babies always stayed in the back of my mind and after my daughter was born I was introduced to the concept of a birth doula. I was instantly fascinated and began my training while pregnant with my second child. Having experienced many births, including two of my own, I know how important knowledge, brain-training & consistent labor support truly is.
My early dreams have clarified and I now know that I am meant to share my unique self by caring for pregnant women as a birth doula, educator and mentor.
I currently offer my support to women through GentleBirth childbirth education workshops, mother support groups (Mighty Mama Village, individualized coaching & birth planning. I am also currently researching ways for doulas to reach under-served communities in my area, as well as spending time abroad serving with a nonprofit in Uganda.
I currently live in Greeley, CO with my husband, two children & 2 fluff-butts, Red & Bodhi. We love spending our free time rock climbing, hiking and exploring the beautiful Rocky Mountains.
