Why did you choose to support Arrival Arts & what do you bring to the table?

I am certified with DONA and I have been working with Lindsey for about 5 years, enjoying every opportunity in the birth world.  It is an honor to be a part of anyone’s birth experience.  I am a good listener and  bring a calm presence.  Along with birth doula work I find postpartum and placenta work to be fascinating and life changing. 

Are you a mama yourself, and what does your family life look like these days?

YES! I have 2 beautiful daughters, Molly who is 11 and Leah who is 7, our duaghter Anne in Heaven and our new son Byron.  My husband Jeremy and I own and operate a grass-fed organic dairy farm just west of Waukon, IA.  My kids are what keep me busy and I am thankful to be able to be home with them.  I find myself spending a lot of time in the kitchen and making healthy wholesome meals for my family is very important to me.  I enjoy cooking and especially love baking!
