What’s your personal motto?
“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.” - Rumi
What brought you to Haumea?
A desire to help more people to have satisfying pregnancy, birth and parenting experiences! After the birth of my first child, and going through that experience with the help of an awesome doula, I was moved to completely switch careers— I entered birth work as a doula and lactation counselor, and later began teaching childbirth ed. It is beyond rewarding to have an impact on such an important time in people’s lives, and I’m thrilled to now be a part of the amazing, growing community that is Haumea!
What is your favorite memory of your mom?
Friday nights with my mom when I was a kid stand out… there was a window of time when my older sister had grown old enough to be off with her friends, and my dad had bowling league, so Friday nights it would be just the two of us. We would go to the movies, or stay in— braiding each other’s hair, and eating strawberry Twizzlers, while watching 20/20. Her vibrant, loving personality and positive attitude made her one of the most fun people to be around, even when we weren’t doing much of anything.
