I am very proud to be the first Neuroscientist Doula!


Transforming lives by improving health is my life’s work and passion. For over 15 years, in academic neuroscience laboratories, I studied how genetics and experience shape the brain, nervous system and body to influence lifelong mental and physical health.  With a deep love and commitment to this work I earned competitive grants and published numerous articles to develop novel treatments for illness. 


Over time in the lab I became increasingly inspired to bring existing powerful knowledge to families, because what we currently know has tremendous power to transform lives, minds and health and make the world a better place for future generations.

My mission is to teach the science and support the art of nurturing infants so families can use sound science to enhance every single day of their children's lives.  Early life experience is so paramount and foundational to creating a healthy brain, mind and body; I can't imagine knowing about this work and not sharing it with the world.


Together we can create a paradigm shift towards a healthier society.
