I'm originally from...
The far east, known as Newfoundland, but moved to Calgary in 2002. My formal training was as a theatre professional; I had the pleasure of being a stage manager and production manager for shows all over the country. I decided to look into the world of doulas in 2008 and quickly fell in love.
I have had the pleasure of attending over 400 births all over Calgary and surrounding areas and have supported several more hundreds as a Postpartum Doula and Lactation Specialist and Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator.
I have been actively involved in the birth community, as the President of the Calgary Doula Association for 3 years, the former Alberta Representative (SPAR) for DONA International, and taking part in many birth and breastfeeding organizations in the City. Now, in addition to supporting new families I support doulas as a DONA International Approved Birth Doula Trainer, and a Seminar Instructor for Lamaze International.
I am thrilled to work though a wonderful company; Elite Doula Group Inc., as well as train doulas through Doula Essentials.
I have a full house, 2 large dogs - Marley and Mia, a small cat - Stfu, and a wonderful guy - my husband Chris. In my spare time I sleep...sometimes.
