I am 28 and have lived in Atlanta for the last 6 years. I actually do not have any children yet, but have been fascinated by pregnancy and birth for literally as long as I can remember. I’m excited to have my own stories to share one day!
I have been interested in birth for as long as I can remember- that was all my dolls ever did, and I would watch A Baby Story obsessively even as a small child. I majored in Public Health as a college student and did some work specifically on reproductive justice. While I didn’t go into that field, it has always been a passion, and I’ve wanted to pursue it since then. I also do and enjoy a lot of training in my day job and knew that birth education was a great way to combine passions.
I would love to work with teen mothers and single mothers (by choice or by chance) in particular, as well as being an open resource for any non-traditional families seeking birth education.
I was drawn to Birth Boot Camp because of the modern and evolving curriculum, tight knit community, and ready-to-launch materials that Birth Boot Camp offered. I was also excited by the way BBC pairs online and in person classes and constantly adds more.
I trained in Birmingham with Cheryl and it was wonderful! I was the only student, so during the day we went through the lessons, and at night we ordered dinner and watched a documentary. She was so helpful and exciting to work with.
I have not taught a class yet- I’m currently working on getting all my logistics set up and determining the best and safest way to move forward mid-COVID.
Training gave me the chance to practice skills multiple times, as well as someone to bounce ideas off of. I also was able to hear stories and experiences that add to my background from Cheryl.
