What do you do for work and what’s the best part of your job? Naturally, I serve, whether I’m serving food at Indigo Coastal Shanty, educating humans on childbirth, leading people through their yoga practice, or supporting a family through their sacred birth experience as a Birth Doula.
The best part about serving food is watching people enjoy a positively sensational experience.
The best part about educating people on childbirth is watching them find the strength and power within to advocate for themselves during a life-changing experience.
The best part about teaching yoga is watching people connect with their divine Self.
The best part about supporting a family through their birth experience is watching them transform into motherhood/fatherhood.

What’s one way you relax when you need to “unwind”? Submerge myself in water!
