Mallorie is a registered nurse who has worked in the field of women's and children's health for several years, primarily in the role of a labor and delivery nurse. She loves education and is passionate about supporting families in every phase of life. Mallorie truly has a heart for taking care of people and prides herself on giving them the tools they need to feel safe and supported.
After a traumatic birth experience that she worked hard to overcome, her journey to healing included changing career paths. Mallorie went back to school for nursing where she received a BSN degree from Baylor University and was fortunate enough to land her dream job at Baylor University Medical Center immediately after graduating. She has a desire to soak up as much knowledge as she can and instill it in women to give them a sense of power and direction in designing their birth experience.
Mallorie is also a DoTerra essential oils wellness advocate, certified in the AromaTouch technique. Also certified in Electronic Fetal Monitoring (C-EFM). She promotes wellness in her family by empowering the people she loves to take control of their health and emotional well-being.
Marissa trained and DONA certified as a doula in high school with the intention to serve teen mothers. By the time she graduated and became a student at TWU, she had seen enough deliveries to solidify her desire to become a nurse. Marissa is currently studying to obtain her bachelor’s degree in nursing at the University of Texas at Arlington. Her attentive nature and warm presence will be a calming energy to her patients, just as it is to her doula clients.
Marissa is the mother of a beautiful daughter, Naomi, who she delivered unmediated with her doula and mentor, Melissa, by her side. Her own delivery continued to PUSH her toward her ultimate goal & mission to serve and support all women and families. Marissa’s great joys come from spending time with family and friends as well as being a mother, partner, sister and daughter.
Marissa has been practicing as a doula for over 5 years and we are so grateful she calls NDDA home.
