I was born and raised in Germany and have been calling California my home for over 16 years. After graduating with a marketing degree in Hanover, Germany I came to the Bay Area in 2007. I worked as an Au-Pair and nanny for several years. Through my work with families I discovered Postpartum Doulas. I knew right away that this was the perfect path for me. I certified as a Postpartum Doula in 2011 with Doula Trainings International and ever since have been furthering my education with workshops, certifications and any research I can get my hands on.
Taking care of new families is my passion. I feel fortunate that I get to work with amazing parents and their beautiful babies.

Keeping the families I work with safe and healthy is my priority. That is why I update my CPR and First Aid Certification for infants, children, and adults every two years - most recently in May 2021.
All my vaccines are up to date including DTaP (whooping cough), measles, flu and Covid-19.
