About Me

I graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in health education. During my first pregnancy, we stumbled upon taking Bradley Method Childbirth classes. I had never really considered natural childbirth, but learned so much through our classes. We had a wonderful, natural birth in the hospital with an OB.

I would not have been able to meet my goals without my husband's support and encouragement, which is one of many reasons I wanted to become a Bradley instructor. I went through the training process in 2007 during my second pregnancy, and finished my first series the week before she was born. My second labor and birth were at home with a midwife. I had my third baby in 2011. He was almost an unplanned unassisted birth, but paramedics made it just in time for his arrival. My fourth baby was born at home in 2016. I have experienced many labor scenarios myself, and have helped at numerous births in home, birth center and hospital settings. 

Since 2011, I have been certified as a labor doula and lactation educator through CAPPA. I am also a Professional Member at Evidence Based Birth®, where I receive frequent continuing education on the best practices in the field. I also completed Rebozo (a labor comfort measure) certification in 2016, and certification with Stillbirthday as a bereavement doula in 2017.
