Jackie (she/her) feels a powerful connection to the healing powers of the earth. As a descendant of the Blackfoot and Sioux tribes, herbal and holistic healing has always played an important role in her family. She looks forward to sharing that wisdom with the birthing families we work with. Jackie is DMV native – she grew up in the District of Columbia, went to school in Pennsylvania, and now lives in Maryland. She values the sacred time surrounding birth and the opportunities she has had to assist family and friends with their newborns for years. After feeling the call to do birth work for some time, she recently decided to dive into doula work professionally through the Doula Training International full spectrum doula training. Jackie uses her naturally empathetic and compassionate personality to advocate for those that are bringing life into this world. Jackie absolutely loves reading everything she can get her hands on, gardening, exploring the healing properties of herbs, practicing bikram yoga, traveling internationally, and cooking vegan meals. Prior to covid Jackie would also mentor and volunteer with local youth.
