In following a lifelong passion for birth and women’s rights, I have a sincere desire to assist each family in connecting with their own pregnancy, birth, and postpartum choices. I find it immensely humbling to support women as they grow, birth, and nourish their babies, and I am honored each time I am invited to be part of such an incredible life experience.  I am proud to support all families regardless of race, faith, sexuality, gender identity, marital status, age, immigration status or family configuration.

I have trained with BAI and Stillbirthday as a birth & bereavement doula and lactation educator, and with Life Cycles Collective Doulas as a postpartum doula.  I've also trained with Birthing From Within, and am trained and certified in the use of rebozo techniques and placenta encapsulation.  I am skilled in birth photography and am thrilled to offer it as part of my services.  I am a proud member of the Buffalo Doula Collective.  I have a special interest in infertility and pregnancy following infertility.  Having previously struggled with infertility myself, I have a unique understanding of the emotions, stress, and technology surrounding those who fight this battle.

I am a born and raised resident of the Buffalo, NY area.  I love our city and watching it constantly grow and develop!  I am married and a proud mother of two incredible children, one born in a hospital and one at home.  I love reading, being outdoors, and biking.
