I have been a certified toLabor doula since 2009, & I certified as a childbirth educator through ALACE/IBWP/toLabor in 2010. I have also studied a variety of other childbirth modalities extensively. I have assisted at births in a variety of settings, from the hospital to the home, & am comfortable assisting at births attended by either midwives or obstetricians. I have also assisted at VBACs, breech births, births of multiples & cesarean births. I have a B.A. from The University of Virginia & a M.F.A. from New York University. I live in Nashville with my husband & our four children.
