My story

I first heard about HypnoBirthing® in 2012 when my daughter asked me to be her labor companion.

After the birth of my grandson, I was so impressed, I became a HypnoBirthing® Practitioner.

When my first HB couples started birthing their babies, I volunteered as a birth doula.

With my very first birth, I knew I was where I was always supposed to be.  I feel that in combination with my education in alternative medicine, I can be an integral part of one of the most important times in your life.

I'm a wife, mom, and nana whose favorite thing in the world is to be with my family. I enjoy bowling, playing tennis, and golf with my husband, Brad.

I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Alternative Medicine from Everglades University in Boca Raton, Florida.

I've been a Certified HypnoBirthing® Practitioner since 2013 and have provided services as a Birth Doula and Labor Companion since early, 2014 – earning my certification in May, 2015.

In 2016, I added Birth Photographer and Placenta Encapsulator to my repertoire of services.

I am so excited about the opportunity to educate and empower families!

My passion is to empower you with the education, tools, and support you need to have the birth you desire.
