Life & Mindset Coach,

Birth Doula & Educator, Placenta Specialist

It is my passion to see and assist others’ in their journeys.  I have been on my own personal development journey since 2001. Reading, affirmations, vision boards, are all fun things I enjoy, but it wasn't until I began my yoga practice, that I started to understand the embodiment of the knowledge.  I quickly learned that yoga is so much more than a physical practice.  Once I realized it is a lifestyle, I couldn't wait to get my yoga teacher training certificate and share it with others!

Only months after certifying to become a yoga teacher, I certified to become a birth doula!  Although not having kids of my own at the time, I was able to relate birth to life, seeing that skills and mindset need for both paralleled each other.  Birth imitates life. In July, 2021, I gave birth to a baby girl, as a surrogate.  Being a doula myself, experiencing birth, advocating while also considering the parent's wishes brought many lessons and blessings my way. 


Three years into my doula practice, I expanded birth coaching into life coaching!  Life imitates birth.  As an avid learner and perpetual student myself, it is my mission to always be expanding, growing, learning, and loving... for myself. For you. For us.  By leading myself first, I can help other's do the same... Together we RISE!

On a whim (but maybe not really), I continued to expand myself into event planning! Organizing, coordinating, planning...it's all part of what I do in all facets of my work! No matter what the occasion or event, I'm here to help guide, empower, excite, build confidence, listen, and support you...

In all your needs!
