About Me

I grew up traveling the world with my family.  Our travels shaped my relationship to the “unknown”.

In Nepal I learned to meditate at Kopan Monastery.  In Africa, I learned to listen with “other ears” from the Bantu.  In the Sudan I learned to see beyond my eyes from the Dinka.  In Turkey and in Saudi Arabia I learned that spirituality is lived, not adorned.

I have been a Doula for 23 years and a Reader for 14 years. I was certain I would be a midwife until a deep and profound experience at a very special birth showed me a world I had long ignored.   After having my own son I discovered a new language. One without words.  As I worked postpartum, this communication was strengthened. I discovered I could use these gifts to celebrate and validate maternal and infant communication.
