- Style of teaching
- As a pediatric nurse practitioner, IBCLC, Lamaze instructor for over 40 years and approved DONA International trainer for over 20 years, I love to provide workshops that inspire, empower and bring out the best of each participant. I use many types of learning styles...lecture, discussion, videos, hands-on practices, group activities to reach each person's needs. Trainings will bring laughs, tears, new friendships and ways to learn about yourself. I love to travel to bring in-person trainings. After my older son served in Marine Corp, I saw the need for labor and postpartum support to young couples who serve our country and may be far away from their families during this precious time. All families need support and I love teaching doulas to provide that care.
