Story

My passion is to be of service to others.

I began my career as a bodyworker addressing my clients’ physical ailments and understanding how are informed by their emotional experiences. In 2010, I was called to work with expectant families. Since then I have spent thousands of hours supporting families by preparing them physically, mentally, and emotionally in welcoming their children. In 2016, I began a Master’s Degree through Bastyr University in Maternal Child Health Systems to improve hospital experiences for all people.
