Jessie is an experienced Registered Nurse who worked for several years as a mother/baby RN before moving to Asheville. Here she is a Labor & Delivery RN and provides overnight postpartum doula/night nurse services for Doulas of Asheville clients.

How did you decide to become a doula?

Supporting families as a doula is a natural spin off to my work as a nurse. I worked for years as a Mother/Baby nurse supporting families in the hospital with they newborns and now work in Labor & Delivery. I love being able to carry that support into my clients’ homes, helping them feel safe, supported, and well rested as they adjust to life with their newborns. 

What's your favorite way to spend a day off?

Well, I mostly work nights… so I love to SLEEP! But in all seriousness, I enjoy being on a mountaintop, overlooking the beautiful scenery. I love camping, and spending time with loved ones.

If you could take a month long trip anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I have always wanted to backpack through Southeast Asia. The countries that peak my interest the most are Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand.

You have a whole weekend to binge watch TV, what's on your list? 

The Office, Scrubs, Anthony Bourdain… pretty much any cooking series or HGTV home flipping shows.

Tell us something about yourself that we may be surprised to learn.  

I have been practicing Brazilian Jiujitsu for the last 6 years! I started off prior to that studying Muay Thai. I enjoy working out.
