Hi, I’m Annie!
I have always felt as though care work is the work I am wired to perform. I am endlessly curious about and fascinated with birth and families and what those things reveal about the human experience. I have had the pleasure of working as a long term in-home nanny for many years and am so enthusiastic about transitioning into the role of birth and postpartum doula. To be able to witness the struggles and triumphs of birth and parenthood is my greatest honor. I seek to ensure that each of my clients feels respected, valued, and whole throughout this transformative experience.
I was raised on the East coast and in the South but have been proud to call Portland home since 2015. I have a degree in Communications from University of Portland and feel passionate about continued education, inside and outside of the classroom. As a doula, I hope to foster a relationship where my client and I can learn from each other by being present, open, and honest.
When I’m not studying, I can be found walking my sweet pup Sissy, listening to funk music, or baking bagels.
