I moved to the majestic mountains of Crested Butte, CO, from the much smaller and softer mountains of Asheville, NC, in the fall of 2019. I am now eager to be of service to families in the Gunnison Valley. I am incredibly passionate about maternal health, social justice, and protecting our collective Mother (Earth).
I am currently getting my Masters in Social Work concentrating on Perinatal Mental Health from Metropolitan State University, and interning with the new postpartum support initiative at Gunnison Valley Health.
When I am not working, I love exploring the wilderness, making good food, connecting with friends, traveling (in a pre-covid world), dismantling white supremacy, and smashing the patriarchy.
I believe that we have been gifted one beautiful precious life and I want to make the most of it.
MY OTHER PROJECTS
International Doula Education Program
I co-founded Wombs of the World 2018. It is an organization that supports women by connecting professional doulas with international maternity clinics. The programs are designed to bring doulas from around the world together, to have a shared experience with birthing women, travel to new lands, and immerse in different cultures while growing a powerful sisterhood of birth workers across the globe.
We currently have programs in Tanzania and Ecuador. Our focus in Tanzania is very hands-on working in two rural maternity clinics, whereas in Ecuador our focus is to learn about ceremony, herbal medicine, and vertical birth from indigenous midwives.
I help non-profits, small businesses, artists, birth workers, social justice advocates, healers, musicians, and entrepreneurs succeed.
When COVID hit and I stopped traveling with Wombs of the World, I decided to focus on helping others succeed. I digitally assist people who are working toward the betterment of their communities and our planet. Whether they are a non-profit, birth worker, activist, artist, social entrepreneur, small business owner, or healer, I will equip them with the "start-up tools" they'll need to succeed.
We only have one planet, and we are only gifted one life. I am determined to make the most of it.
