How did you decide to become a doula?
My passion for women's health, birth, and babies began as a curiosity turned life-changing obsession. While my friends were looking at the latest viral video on Facebook, I was going down the rabbit hole of birth videos. I decided to train as a doula to learn more about this passion and be able to offer professional service to women and their families throughout their childbearing years. I've since also attended school to study naturopathic nutrition with a focus on female fertility nutrition and I have also completed herbalism school.
What's your favorite way to spend a day off?
Oh my gosh, there's so much! I'm obsessed with finding waterfalls to explore and love learning about the native wildlife here in WNC. But I'm also just as happy to stay home snuggled up with my fur-babies :)
If you could take a month long trip anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Everywhere! But really, I have a month long backpacking trip through Europe planned with a good friend and *can't wait* to explore. I love meeting people, exploring new places, and learning about different cultures.
You have a whole weekend to binge watch TV, what's on your list?
Confession time, I don't have a TV! I just recently finished herbalism school and spend most of my non-work time working on custom tinctures and other herbal remedies for myself and clients. .
Tell us something about yourself that we may be surprised to learn.
Oh gosh, I don't know! I suppose people are usually pretty surprised to learn my age (I'm not telling, ha!) based on all the experience I have supporting families with babies.
