Alex is a BEST certified birth doula and placenta encapsulator. Her passion for birth and everything babies began while teaching prenatal yoga and massage as an undergrad at UC Santa Barbara. After receiving her Master’s degree in public administration from the University of San Francisco, she found a passion for public health, and more specifically maternal health. This led her back to NDDA and the doula community that helped her bring her daughter into the world.
Alex holds certifications in blood borne pathogens, placenta processing, a food handler’s license, and Yoga Alliance’s RYT 200. As a child of two immigrants she is passionate about respecting all cultures, traditions, and decisions that birthing families make on their momentous journey into parenthood. She considers herself an urban hippie, biking to work, but also raising her family in the heart of Downtown Dallas.
Originally from the Bay Area in California, she’s planted roots in Texas with her daughter Emerson, husband Nigel, and scruffy dog Toby.
