Kelli’s deep passion arises through supporting a family as they bring a new soul to our world. She became a doula in 2005, after a friend shared her challenging birth experience. As Kelli listened to her friend she had a sense deep within that it was a calling she had to fulfill. She enrolled in the Birthwise doula program in Santa Cruz and thus began her new career. She brings a gentle and compassionate spirit as well as focused expertise to her work. Kelli has been a devoted yogi for over 15 years. She completed her 200 hour teacher training at the White Lotus Foundation and has a Pre- and Postnatal certification. Kelli has been on a healing journey, seeking ways to increase her own health after she and her love were challenged with infertility when they decided to start a family. She brings a strong foundation in nutrition, fitness, meditation and bodywork to her practice, and enjoys spending two days a week delighting in the magic and imagination of children at a home-based Waldorf preschool. Her sanctuary is the forests and ocean surrounding her near by home.
Kelli is certified to teach the 8-week Pregnancy Journey classes + the 4-week Birth Journey classes.
