Jenn is passionate about passing along her knowledge to families and other doulas, knowing that she is learning just as much from them! She loves training new doulas and childbirth educators.  Jenn is a sought after instructor, she’s traveled all over North America, and even to Australia to teach and help new doulas find their own path.

She currently lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba with her wonderful husband, her four amazing kids and two drooling bulldogs.
