A Bit About Ann

In walking through my own pregnancy, labor and delivery, and discovering the unexpected realities of the postpartum period, I became acutely aware of the importance of having a supportive tribe of women surrounding this delicate time of life. I have always viewed myself as an advocate of women, especially those who may lack access to essential resources, and it is this passion that fueled me towards becoming a doula. 

 

I trained to be a postpartum doula in August of 2017 and to be a birth doula in January of 2018 with DONA International. I became certified through DONA International in July of 2020 and am a COVID-19 approved birth worker as a result. I have completed my Lactation Management Training with Lactation Education Resources, so I have breastfeeding knowledge and am well-connected to local lactation consultants. I received my Bachelor’s in Education from Liberty University and am currently teaching at a local Montessori school. I am CPR, AED, and First Aid certified through the American Safety and Health Institute. I live in Sarasota, Florida and enjoy photography, beach days, and most of all, spending time laughing & playing with my two year-old son. 

I look forward to serving you and your family during this incredible time in your life!
