My journey: While earning my Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Marquette University, I became aware of a strong passion for treating pelvic and abdominal conditions. During and after college, I sought out extensive instruction in pelvic health care through specialty internships, continuing education courses, and a post-graduate residency program at Loyola University Medical Center, and achieved my goal of becoming a board certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist through the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). In 2020 during my first pregnancy, I experienced a disappointing labor and delivery that left me feeling defeated, mistreated and powerless. Although heartbreaking for me, this experience led me to expand out of the Physical Therapy bubble and into the doula world to help other birthing individuals avoid similar disappointments due to lack of communication and support during labor and delivery.                                                                

Empowering Your Journey: Every pregnant person has the right to advocate for their birth preferences. Pregnancy, labor, and delivery are amazing but often overwhelming experiences, and having a solid support team can make all the difference. My goals are to help you confidently create a team to navigate the incredible journey of pregnancy and birth, and rebuild a positive relationship with your body in the years after.

Beyond Serenity: When not busy assisting clients or staying up-to-date with the latest advancements in the pelvic health and birth world, I spend time with my wonderful husband, two energetic young sons, and three feline pests (not a typo, they are lovable furry demons). 

"I am here to provide you with the knowledge, care, and guidance you deserve throughout your pregnancy and postpartum journey. I look forward to being a part of your support team during this incredible chapter in your life!"
