A bit about me - I am committed to growth, grassroots communit​y and joyful living.  I have lived in the Houston area most of my life and have marveled at all of the unique individuals who call this place home! Outside of the birthing world, I love to run, garden, bake, read, travel, draw, sing, play sports, listen to the ocean, dance, smell campfires, watch snow fall and put on brand new socks.  I graduated from Rice University in 1998 with a BA in Political Science & Policy Studies.  I then served in the Teach for America Program, a two-year service commitment to the local school system.  I received my certification in early
childhood education as well as bilingual education and taught for five years in
H.I.S.D. and with the K.I.P.P. Academy charter school.  I left the teaching field to

Please don't take chances with your health. A wellness plan that's easy to understand and follow through on is key to good health all through your life. Make chiropractic a cornerstone of that plan, and you're well on your way to living a life that's active and free from pain.


join Houston's first public television station, HousonPBS (KUHT) as an Education & Outreach Coordinator, providing community  education and  professional training on media literacy, early reading skills, etc.  I decided to change course in 2007  and joined  the UH Women's Studies program as a program manager.  
In my personal life, I gave birth to my daughter, Ada, in 2006 via induction (low amniotic fluid level) and unwanted cesarian section.   After six months of post-partum depression, I began reflecting on the birth, reaching out to support groups and decided to explore different options  including a change in practitioner and hospital for the next time around. In 2008, I gave birth to my son, Jonah, via natural, non-drug induced vaginal birth.  This was a deeply moving experience for me and a catalyst for my involvement in the holistic birth philosophy.  In 2010, Eden joined the family in the quiet intimacy of our home - bringing still more awe regarding the birth experience. We recently added a final chapter to our birthing story with the quick, intimate delivery of our last child, Odin, in our living room amidst all of his sister's and brother's toys.  There are so many ways to have a baby! I apprenticed with mentor, Nadia Stein, in doula services and childbirth education and continue to learn about the mysteries of pregnancy, labor and birth through the wonderful clients and passionate midwives and obstetricians I have had the opportunity to work with. I enjoy supporting couples in all stages of parenthood - from family planning to conception to birth and beyond and feel equally comfortable in all settings - hospital, birth center and home. I am part of a larger Houston Area Doula Group - TLC Doulas, a group of women, like me, who all share a similar birth philosophy and approach to prenatal/postpartum care.
