I serve women and girls as a menstrual cycle educator and prenatal and postpartum caregiver. I work to give women the tools to make educated decisions about their bodies. Whether by using the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) to avoid pregnancy or conceive, sitting in circle with other women to discuss hopes, fears, and passions, or taking one of my Your Wise Body girl and teen classes, my goal is for women and girls to love and trust their bodies!
Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, I have lived and worked throughout the state, serving women in various capacities. I lived in San Antonio for 6 years, where I gained a Bachelor's of Arts in Environmental Studies and World Religion from Trinity University and then worked for two years as a birth and postpartum doula and urban farmer. After that, I moved to a small farm in Indiana and later to the Rio Grande Valley on the Texas-Mexico border. There I worked at a birth center, teaching childbirth education classes, attending births, and creating a postpartum support circle for low-income women.
As my experiences may suggest, I feel a deep passion for honoring women and land. Environmental stewardship, anti-racist work, social justice, and feminism all drive me. Although each issue has distinct goals, I believe that all share commonalities. We cannot fully heal as individuals and as a society without a commitment to healing in all areas. Through Beldam Womancare I work to address this healing based on the belief that strong, supported women change the world.
