Teri Shilling, MS, CD(DONA), IBCLC, LCCE
CEO and Founder
As CEO, Teri is the Creative Energy Organizer! She is the creator of The Idea Box for the Creative and Interactive Childbirth Educator and its supplement Staying Energized.
In addition to PfB I am also a DONA doula trainer for the Simkin Centerl/Bastyr U. I am a past president of Lamaze.  Locally I am a member of Skagit County Breastfeeding Coalition and a member of PATTCh.
I teach for two local hospitals and serve as a lactation consultant at one.  I very occasionally attend births as a doula, when it fits with my travel schedule.  My two kids are now adults and continue to be my pride and joy.
