Welcome ! Most people call me Katie, my middle name is Joy.
In 2015, The birth of my daughter ignited a fire in me, to become a birth worker. The journey of becoming a mother and having a daughter has been my greatest teacher in life. I practice traditional teachings in reiki, yoga and meditation and integrate these practices into my work. As an artist, interweaving creativity into everyday life, is medicine to the soul.
In 2020, I mentored with Chanel Porchia Albert of Ancient Song Doula Services and studied with Divine Nicholas of Divine Birth Wisdom. Re-learning the critical foundations of birth work, decolonizing birth and committing to working towards Reproductive Justice. Please take a moment to visit the resource page to find people and grass roots organizations working in Reproductive Justice to uplift and support.
Birth and Death are sacred ceremonies, and my path has led me to hold space for all life's transitions. I believe in inclusivity for all people regardless of your gender, ethnicity, religion or social/economic status. My intention and hope is to help create an "opening" to access all the knowledge, creativity and strengthen that's already deep inside of you!
In my free time, I enjoy connecting to Mother Earth, finding peace exploring the many layers to this world. I currently reside in Brooklyn, NY with my family. I work in surrounding boroughs as a Doula, Reiki practitioner and Artist.
