Hi! My name is Elissa, I am a Utah native married to my sweetheart of 14 years. We have 4 beautiful children that keep us moving! Between homeschooling, jobs, extracurricular activities, church callings and constantly furthering education we stay close knit and busy.
After each of my children’s births, the calling to be a part of the birth process got stronger and stronger. Finally after having my last little guy I knew the time was right and I signed up for my doula training and dove right in! I can’t get enough! I continue to educate myself and learn everything I can to better serve my clients.
I see pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and the growth of a family as one of the most beautiful things about todays world . As a Doula, I am privileged to help women and their partners make these experiences as positive and empowering as possible.
