I am originally from Philadelphia where I have spent the last 5 years gaining experience as a Doula. I suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum during my first pregnancy and became a doula out of the desire to keep other birthing families from experiencing the same lack of care that I have.


It is such an honor to be actively working towards becoming a midwife by learning under such a talented Midwifery team. It is my intention to use the knowledge I have gained in my current roles to reduce birth disparities and provide inclusive care. I entered birth work with the desire to hold space for growing families, offer support and education while guiding them into trusting themselves. All families deserve access to proper and informed care, before, during and after birth. I recognize that people of all identities, backgrounds, and dynamics give birth and I am here to hold space as their new lives unfold. Outside of birth work, I love painting, sculpting, exploring new places, and loving on my daughter and partner..
