Kim had spent over 20 years working as an administrative assistant in the corporate world before becoming a doula. It was when she became pregnant with her 5th daughter she decided it was time to make a career change. Enrolling in massage school would be that change. Soon after graduation, she was introduced to the world of doulas. Two years later she became a postpartum doula a placenta encapsulator and then a birth doula. She received her postpartum certification through the International Doula Institute (IDI) and placenta certification through HERBAL (Holistically Empowered Rebel Birthkeepers Academy of Learning) and her birth doula certificate through DONA.
Kim understands the importance of being supported during the 4th trimester. When she had her first 4 daughters, her “village” consisted of grandmothers, aunts and her own mom. For her 5th daughter, that village looked very different and because of that was drawn to supporting families. She enjoys supporting families during this ever-changing time and reassuring them that they are equipped with exactly what their baby needs.
When Kim is not doula-ing or massaging she spends time binge-watching Netflix, improving on her novice gardening skills or hanging with her family. She resides in Loudoun County with her husband and 8-year-old daughter.
