What are your favorite resources for expecting parents/new families?
I love “Moms on Call.” They have books based on the age of your child. “The Contented Baby” basically taught me how to care for a baby. I also love “Mama Natural” for pregnancy.
Tell us about your family!
My husband and I have been married for 3 years. We have two black cats that I brought to the relationship. Then we adopted our miniature schnauzer, Eloise, in 2015. After Eloise we adopted our special needs dog, Tallulah Belle, in 2017. In 2018 we had our son, Harrison.
What do you love about being a doula?
I love that I can be a part of someone’s life during such a special and unique time. I feel honored that families let me in their home and trust me with the thing(s) that matter most to them.
Give us your best piece of advice to expecting parents/new families.
In the words of Samuel L. Jackson in Jurassic Park, “hold on to your butts!”
But seriously being a new parent can be really hard. It’s OK to not be OK. But remember your well-being still matters. It’s OK to ask for help. You can’t pour from an empty cup, as they say.
If we turned on the radio in your car, what would we hear?
You would hear a true crime podcast. I’m obsessed with true crime. I really like Wine and Crime and True Crime Garage.

What’s your favorite show/movie, vacation, food, hobby?
I love Parks and Rec. I just saw the movie Dumplin’ and I loved it. My favorite vacation was to Belize. My favorite food is chips and salsa. And I love cleaning, like really love it.
Who is your role model?
Rose from Golden Girls or David from Schitts Creek.
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
I don’t think parents have a day off. But I’m a homebody so I like to be with my family, order takeout and watch Netflix.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?
I would astro-project because I feel like I could get a lot done while also sleeping. Controlling the weather would be great too.
What is your favorite song to karaoke?
I don’t karaoke because I care about my fellow humans. But I guess “Wherever, Whenever” by Shakira because I love Shakira’s hair.
