I was honored to have received an appointment to the Charles County Commission for Women in October 2018, eager to join these individuals in helping our community thrive. The Charles County Commissioners established the Commission for Women in 1996 by Resolution #96-34 to better define and identify services needed for women in the County. We have a total of 15 members, appointed by the County Commissioners for up to four-year terms. I am pleased to join the W.E. Matters (Women's Empowerment Matters) and Legislative Committees.
Our Mission: The Commission works to raise awareness of issues affecting women and families by serving as a conduit between women and existing services and advocating for programs, education and legislation.

I have been on maternity leave for quite some time now and closed my business to take care of my growing family. In the midst of this wonderful and welcomed change, I was invited to become a School Counselor for Charles County Public Schools in Maryland. I gladly took on the role for the last 1.5 years. The growth in my family, career and mindset have been huge. In reflecting on my priorities, advocacy for family, child and maternal health have been at the forefront of my spirit's calling.
So I have voluntarily left my position to resume care of my family, personal well-being and community activism while continuing my training/education in the field of holistic health/wellness. I plan to continue work as a substitute teacher in the county while building up my childbirth education offerings. For the time being, back up or postpartum doula support will be offered on a limited availability (no birth support available).
I sincerely appreciate all the love and support my friends, family, colleagues and neighbors have provided to us and hope to pay it forward one day at a time. Keep showing up, using your powers for good and loving the heck out of this world. Remember who we are leaving this all to after we are gone. Oh, and VOTE. :)
January 2017- Maddie, 5.5 weeks old, is the youngest of the 4 generations of our family who attended the #WomensMarch on Washington — in Washington, District of Columbia.
Please congratulate this family as they celebrated the birth of their first child one month ago. It was a privilege to witness their growth throughout pregnancy, birth and the days that followed. Their faith and love are absolute pillars for the foundation of their parenting journey. Thank you for sharing your lives with me. #doula
Please welcome Baby Isaac to our community! It was my absolute honor to bear witness to his mother and father as they welcomed him into the world. Grateful hearts abounded in the birthing room as they were surrounded his grandparents throughout labor. The joy and dedication expressed by the family was palpable. Such a beautiful and powerful, informed and supported birth; thank you all. #doula #vbac
