As a postpartum doula and newborn care specialist, my goal is to help ease your transition to parenthood. My postpartum experience has been supporting a wide range of families, including twins, breastfeeding and bottle feeding. It is important to be not only physically present, but emotionally present with each individual family I work with. Postpartum care needs to differ between families, so I am continuously attentive as those needs change. Though I have worked in childcare with every age group, my passion is supporting families and caring for newborns through the postpartum period. Coming alongside new parents to offer support and knowledge in order to enable them to nurture their new baby and feel confident in their new roles. I especially love helping families with overnight care so that they can feel rested and refreshed to take on each day.
Relationships are important to me and I grateful for the many relationships and friendships I have built with clients over the years. Working as a temp nanny and an au pair in Europe gave me the opportunity learn that there are many different cultures, lifestyles, and home environments. It has also given me the ability to adapt to different schedules, routines,home layouts and to become familiar with the intricacies of working alongside families in their homes.
Continuing education is vital for me so I continue to work on certifications to add to my ability to provide the very best care to the families I serve.
Exploring nature and the mountains is how I spend my time off. I am from Washington State, but I am enjoying exploring Colorado, whether it’s by hiking, snowshoeing, or mountaineering. I have done some long distance backpacking trips, and am always eager to be planning my next adventure. As an active member and volunteer of the Colorado Mountain Club, I enjoy taking classes, hiking with groups, instructing backcountry skills classes, and improving my mountaineering skills.
