I'm very passionate about working with families during this vulnerable and significant moment in their lives. I have experience as a postpartum doula and have worked with several local families.


My background is in the non-profit sector working with mothers, babies, and children of all ages. I worked in a nursery and art center in Cambodia, called Let Us Create. There I worked with children and infants who faced extreme poverty.


I also volunteered in Vancouver at a safe house called Vancouver Rape Relief & Women’s Shelter. I ran a childcare program there for families who were fleeing domestic abuse.


Additionally, I worked for over two years with Urban Native Youth Association at a transitional house for indigenous girls involved in the foster care system. In turn, I have extensive experience in counselling, crisis intervention, and caregiving.

As a mother of two, both my babies were born at home, assisted by a doula and midwife team. This experience was amazingly transformative for me. However, after my first was born I found myself very isolated and likely suffered from undiagnosed postpartum depression.


Because of this experience, I feel very strongly about helping families transition into their new dynamic with dignity and agency. As a postpartum doula, I bring a social justice model and an inclusive, non-judgemental lens.


I support the family’s right to receive support that is free of discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, and spiritual beliefs.
