She is a PBi certified placenta encapsulation specialist, Birth Doula trainee (BAI), and Breastfeeding Educator trainee (BAI).

Katie (she, her, hers) is a mom to two boys, Auggie and Hunter, one very large black lab, Archie, and partner to her husband, Jonathan. Katie has worked with survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence for the last 14 years and currently serves survivors on the campus of UNCG. Katie became interested in postpartum and adoption work after her own postpartum experience and after hearing from other parents who expressed a need for non-judgmental support in the first year of a child’s life. Katie is a photographer and a pre-certified Post-Partum and Infant Care Doula (Pro-Doula).
“Those first few weeks/months after bringing a child home can be so amazing and also so overwhelming. It is important that parents know they have choices and they deserve non-judgmental support. My goal is to empower parents to make the best choice for their family and gain the skills to thrive as a family.” – Katie
