Why am I a doula?

My commitment to reproductive justice and health equity has led me to birth work.

I have experience in reproductive health as a childbirth educator, OBGYN medical assistant, program coordinator for a sexual and reproductive health and rights non-profit organization, and clinical research data manager in gynecologic oncology. In all of these roles, I am drawn to work that addresses health inequities, particularly with access to reproductive health.

I understand pregnancy is both an empowering and vulnerable time, and I want to provide meaningful support for all pregnancy outcomes including birth, adoption, loss, and abortion. 

I identify as queer and use she/her pronouns. It is important to me to provide unbiased care for all pregnant people seeking doula support in the east mountains and Albuquerque area. I am a member of the group Doulas of the Southwest, and am a volunteer Birth Companion at UNMH.
