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. :)
