I discovered doula work as a student at The Evergreen State College through a developing interest in midwifery. As I delved into this interest, I was astonished to learn about the history of childbirth in the United States, the current state of birth in this country, and about the amazing role of a doula! I was amazed and inspired by the positive influence that a doula has been proven to have on the health and well being of women and babies in childbirth and postpartum. It didn't take me long to decide that this was a path that I wanted to pursue, and I attended my doula training in June of 2009.
I have been practicing massage therapy since 2006, which I have found to be a great asset to bring to doula work. I have an undergraduate degree in Public Health and Women's Studies, and I am currently studying for the GRE as I try to figure out what combination of public health, midwifery, and maternal and child health studies to pursue in higher education.
