"Not only did she help me through the last weeks of pregnancy, and through labor, but she helped lessen the stress for my husband as he watched me in pain. I believe the birth of our daughter would have been significantly different than what I wanted if Ashley had not been there." - Lilly

Two years ago, I welcomed my first son into this world and with his birth came a growing passion to support women and to help them to find their strength and voice. I am proud to call Nevada my home, but have enjoyed relocating to my husband's native Pensacola area. After moving and beginning training to become a doula, we welcomed our second son with the help from our doula, Evangeline. I have been so blessed to meet and foster many relationships with professionals within the birth community since then.

I have always been drawn to 'helping' roles and that led me to become a certified nursing assistant where I worked for 5 years in a hospital setting as I completed my BS in Public Health. It wasn't until I became a mother that I knew my heart and passion was in becoming a doula. I absolutely love and feel so honored to be able to serve and support women during such a profound and intimate time in their lives.

"Evangeline has a wonderful personality- she's very sweet, funny, knowledgable but not overbearing with her opinions. She allows the birth experience to be fully yours. She goes above and beyond in all that she is called to do. You don't feel judged at all when you talk to her. You can say and believe what you want and she will support you so you can have your dream birth experience"- Elizabeth

I joined the proud ranks of motherhood in 2012 with the birth of my son. Since then, I have continued to be inspired by the strength, devotion, and persistence of the fellow mothers I have been so honored to serve. My husband, Justin, and I are both Pensacola natives and feel a strong connection to this community.

I am a "retired" secondary education teacher. I adored the classroom, my students, and my subject, but I felt pulled in another direction after my son was born. I feel a calling to support mothers and families in the childbearing years. To say I am passionate about improving women's chances of a better birth and motherhood experience is an understatement. I aim to do everything in my power to encourage, inspire, and empower all my courageous mothers.
