What is your favorite song at the moment? 

Happiness by Needtobreathe

What's the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

Have 6 children, I am currently living in my own beautiful kind of crazy.

What is your biggest fear? 

Although I try not to be a fearful person, I would have to say that it would be a nightmare to lose my husband or children.

What did you want to be when you were little? 

A mom and a teacher. 

What makes you laugh the most? 

My husband, he "thinks" he's a comedian and I can't help but smile when my children laugh or do something silly! 

What makes you a great doula? 

I am a great doula because I have lived it. I am a mom and I have had many different scenarios and experiences. I've been a teen mom, I've had an epidural, I've had a completely natural birth, I've bottle fed and I've breastfed. One thing all families have in common is we want the best for baby and I am confident I can empower any family to reach that goal with support, love  and compassion.

If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would you do?

I would choose to have all my laundry done, all at once, while I enjoy my family! (Pretty far fetched, huh?!)

If you could master one skill you don’t have right now, what would it be?

Crossfit, I secretly want to be one of those fit and tough mamas! 

What's your favorite tv show or shows?

Parenthood was my favorite and I really like When Calls the Heart.

What is the best part about your job or your training?

The best part is getting to meet other people that are so different than myself. The intelligent conversations, opinions and the topics are fascinating to me. I am excited to keep learning! I am also in complete awe of how carefully God created life! Pregnancy, birth and everything that comes with it is just pure beauty in my eyes!
