Board of Directors

My Family (husband and children)

Yep, my family acts as my Board of Directors. When I am in doubt, questioning, or needing guidance, my family are who I go to for support. And, we have actual meetings! Perhaps one day I will have a Board of Directors conveined of experts, but for now, I'm pretty happy with the one I've got!

Guiding Values

Curiosity—openness, self-reflective

Depth—below the surface, profound, heart-centered

Community—supportive, loving, just, and equitable

Growth—to evolve, grow, develop, change, continue

Integrity—honest, genuine, brave, true to self

Guiding Principles

  • Perfection is an illusion. Growth is valued here. We understand that setbacks, missteps, and “failures” are often opportunities for growth and learning.
  • Individuals are the experts in their own lives.
  • Not-knowing is a position and practice that has value in its own right.
  • Wisdom comes in many forms and from many sources.
  • Birth/postpartum work and soul work are interconnected.
  • Anti-racism, LGBTQIA inclusion, and intersectionality are inseparable from birth and postpartum work.
  • Brave communities of people are great for stimulating and supporting inner and outer development.
