Working part time and homeschooling her children for a number of years, she was the volunteer La Leche League leader for 15 years. As her children grew, she went on to become an internationally certified childbirth educator and a certified birth doula working with expectant families.

Prior to joining the Foundation, she was the site director for Health Imperative’s Island clinic, a local nonprofit that offers sexual and reproductive health services to all genders, WIC (Women, Infant, and Children) nutritional support, and young parents support services.
