Relevant volunteer or advocacy work

I'm a certified community health worker. I have contributed to the Momnibus Committee for MO, the Community Health Worker Coalition, and provided guidance to various non-profit organizations committed to improving maternal health outcomes. I've worked with pilot doula programs to advocate for equitable pay for local doulas and established a relationship with several community partners. I've expanded my services to support SUD patients through the SSM Wish Center, postpartum doula care through Elephant Baby Extensive Postpartum Support, and the Stork Nest Doula Program. In addition to providing doula care, I'm an IBCLC providing breastfeeding education and mentorship to doulas or future IBCLCs.
