After a successful 15-year career in the nonprofit sector and higher education, I found my calling in supporting growing families by becoming a birth doula and integrating my yoga practice into my doula services.

I’m happy to call Twentynine Palms and the greater Morongo Basin home. I hope to utilize my skills, knowledge, and experience in the nonprofit sector to improve the lives of residents of the Morongo Basin. I want to dismantle systemic obstacles to break the cycle of poverty and open up opportunities for economic growth for all residents. Improving access to healthcare by serving on the Morongo Basin Healthcare District board of directors is an important component of the greater solution to make a difference in the lives of the people of Morongo Basin. I am pleased to serve.
