A little about me: I graduated from Irene’s Myomassology School in September 2004 and immediately enrolled in a course to be a Certified Prenatal Massage Therapist followed by Certified Massage Doula with the Massage Doula Network. I held that doula certification from 2006-2016. In 2012 I enrolled to become a Certified Childbirth Educator with Childbirth International (CBI) and loved the program so much that I enrolled in the Birth Doula program and have been certified with CBI since 2015.

Most recently, I have successfully completed 9.2 CEUs on Safety and Infection Control and Prevention with CBI

I currently hold certification and membership with the following organizations:

CLD(CBI), Dip CBEd
Certified Birth Doula & Certified Childbirth Educator
Board Certified Massage Therapist
Michigan License #7501000053
Certified Member Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals
