Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

Hello! I am a just starting out as a new birth doula. I am located just outside of Louisville, Kentucky. I have a passion for helping others and have worked in service related fields my whole life. I am pursuing doula certification through DONA International at this time and have completed DONA’s Workshop for Birth Doulas and Intro to Childbirth for Doulas Workshop. I aim to be a certified doula by the end of 2019. By the time I begin accepting clients in August I will have more trainings under my belt. While I am unable to attend births until August I am available for interviews and prenatal visits. I am a former residential advocate (residential care facility for special needs and traumatized children and teenagers) and have 8 years of experience in the healthcare field serving in such roles as a live-in caregiver (1 year), Home Health Aid (4 years), Residential Advocate (3 years). I served for a year on a board at a retreat center centered on feminine healing and spirituality. I also have a great deal of experience caring for babies and children of all ages. I worked for nearly 2 years in a community services center and food pantry providing food and other resources to low-income families. Please reach out to me if I can be of service to you!

Languages spoken: English and French fluently. Some Spanish and Arabic
