Hi! I'm so glad you are visiting Treasure Valley Doulas. A little about me... I'm married to the love of my life; we have three adult children and six grandchildren! I jokingly tell people I was 10 when I got married. I'm a kid at heart, I love life and love to enjoy it with my family and friends. I'm a creative thru and thru and bring my creative heart to every aspect of my role as a Birth Doula. I'm also a person of Faith and support the choice of faith each of my families have. For many years I served women and their families during labor and birth and always longed to make it my life's work. I love supporting families and I don't take it lightly the personal space I'm invited into as a doula. Every woman and family should have loving, caring support to help as you navigate this special time. I'm here for you... every step of the way. :-)
