I am a wife to a loving supportive husband and a momma of two beautiful children. I moved to Los Angeles from Michigan in 1998 and started my journey as a working actress in TV commercials. At the time, I thought that was all I needed in my life to be happy. It didn't take me long before I figured out what I really wanted to do and who I really am. It has always been in my nature to nurture and heal so in 2000 I became a Holistic Massage Therapist tending to the whole needs of my clients; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
My interest eventially started branching out in all different directions yet intertwining with one another. My passion for babies made me realize I wanted to educate, empower, and support other parents in their journey into and through parenthood. In 2013 I received my DONA approved Birth Doula Certification through Bini Birth and after my own children were born, I started to realize how important Infant Massage really was so in 2014 I became a Certified Educator of Infant Massage. Around the same time, I picked up photography as a hobby and after I injured my shoulder, I moved away from being a Massage Therapist and Doula to focus more on my lifestyle and birth photography.
I am real, I am raw and having gone through a traumatic experience as a teenager, almost losing my daughter from vaccines and being diagnosed with Hypothyroid - Hashimotos, I created Informed Momma. I want to share with you how I became informed using my personal experience and helpful tips on how to navigate though motherhood and lifestyle change.
