Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

I am a trained Doula through Doulas of North America (DONA) and have been a caregiver since I was 15 years of age. Growing up as the oldest of 13 cousins and all our family friends’ children I fell into the role of a babysitter, mentor, and a dear friend quickly. I have worked with broad ages from newborns to 18 years old. Most of my young adult life, aside from caring for my family and friends, I taught surf lessons, volunteered in my mother’s class room (preschool to 5th grade), and spent time volunteering at the local YMCA, teaching and assisting youth swim lessons, now living in Santa Cruz I spend my Tuesdays and Thursdays volunteering at LUMA providing postpartum care to mothers. It is through these experiences that I have found that each individual brings a unique light to my life, enriching it every time.
