Respecting the woman as an important and valuable human being and making certain that the woman’s experience while giving birth is fulfilling and empowering is not just a nice extra, it is absolutely essential as it makes the woman strong and therefore makes society strong.

Welcome and thank you for being here!

My passion in women's advocacy led me to start my career in the social sector supporting the financial inclusion of women and minorities. The inspiration towards advancing the economic empowerment of minorities and women was ignited by my entrepreneurial grandmother who was a farmer in Colombia and my mother who is a florist.

Eventually, I decided to grow my mission in women's advocacy as a birth worker and I completed my birth doula training with Debra Pacali-Bonaro in 2014. I am trained in Lamaze, Hypnobirthing techniques and completed the Midwifery Assistant training at Ina May Gaskin's The Farm in Tennessee in 2015.  Additionally, I am certified in Spinning Babies®, neonatal resuscitation, and CPR. 

No birth is the same and there is not one right way to prepare, therefore, my goal is to help parents develop their own personal approach to birth through various multi-method techniques. Being invited to be a part of mother's birth team is always an honor.  I'm devoted to helping parents demystify the birth process while equipping them with hypnobirthing techniques and supporting them with kindness, evidence-based information and of course, a little humor.

I currently reside in Colorado where I am independent contractor doula with the Children's Hospital Immunodefeciency Program in Denver and am thrilled to be supporting families through my new doula partnership venture: The Birth Haus Collective
