I have taught childbirth education since 2006 and have been attending births as a doula since 2007. As an anthropologist I worked as a consultant for the Mayor's Healthy Neighborhood Initiative. I am certified in Childbirth Education through the Association of Labor Assistants and Childbirth Educators (A.L.A.C.E.) and am the Maryland State Representative for DONA International. I live and garden in the Ville, with my husband, and our two kids.
