I have been a registered
Nurse since 1993. I started working with Fresno EOC Early Head Start in 2000 as their Maternal Child Health and Disabilities
Coordinator, and it was there that my passion for helping pregnant families evolved! This led me to become a Lamaze Certified
Childbirth Educator, Lamaze Labor Support and Teen Specialist, and a DONA Birth Doula.
The births of my own
three children showed me how empowering an experience Birth can be ... if you have the tools to make it happen your way, and
working with women taught me that most families don't have these tools.
Breastfeeding my own
three children, all while working full time and some for an extended period of time, taught me what true bonding and being
in love is!
Working with families taught me that Breastfeeding is an art... not always easy, and that women need support. I extended my education to
become a Certified Lactation Education Counselor as well as a La Leche League Peer Counselor Administrator so that I could
better support our community and my clients.
