I am a trans non-binary parent of two, spouse, doula, lactation counselor, nurse, midwife, and nurse practitioner. I have over 13 years of experience in birth work and community support. I was a co-founder of a busy NY doula group prior to launching Sparkwell Seattle in 2019. Having a doula and midwives at my own births had a profound effect on me and I wanted to be able to share that knowledge, comfort, and support with other birthing parents birthing at home, birth center, or hospital. I have always felt that pregnancy was a very special time of our lives and am blessed to be a part of so many families' experiences. Some of my training & experience includes:

  • Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner & Certified Nurse-Midwife, MSN in Nurse-Midwifery

  • Registered Nurse, Bachelors in Science of Nursing 

  • Bachelors of Science in Community & Human Services: Health Care Management 

  • Certified Lactation Counselor, Nurse Lactation Education Specialist 

  • DONA Trained and Certified as a Birth Doula 

  • CAPPA Trained and previously dual-certified as a Labor Doula 

  • Hypnobabies Trained & Certified HypnoDoula

  • Trained as a HypnoBirthing Doula

  • Certified in Neonatal Resuscitation

 

I offer private support for lactating, breastfeeding and chestfeeding parents. I am passionate about the appropriate provision of LGBTQIA+ healthcare services and also addressing racial, socioeconomic, and gender-based healthcare disparities. I continue to speak professionally on social justice issues whenever possible and advocate for centering the voices of the most impacted communities. In addition to lactation services and postpartum doula work, I offer belly casting, belly mapping, and private childbirth education custom-tailored to your family's needs. Book me any time through the MavenClinic app or send me an e-mail to discuss in-person or telehealth support.
