My Story


Empowering women and their partners throughout the birth process is my most sacred work. As a volunteer doula for Sutter Davis Hospital, I witnessed the transformative power of pregnancy and birth that gave women the clarity and strength to guide, nurture and care for their families. After completing my Birth Doula Certification through DONA in 2004, I had an inspired realization that there is wisdom from the pregnancy and delivery process that relate to both genders and all stages of life.

As I witnessed the healing power of birth for women, I simultaneously studied and discovered the physical and spiritual healing of yoga. For this reason, I completed a 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training and an 85-hour Prenatal Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training registered with Yoga Alliance.
