Hi, I’m Emily!

I hear you want to know what it's like to be a doula? Well thank you for finding us! When I become a doula almost a decade ago, I wish there was a webinar like this out there. We will talk about the good and the bad. How to get started, and how COVID has effected doula work. After you finish the webinar, you'll hop on a call with me and we will chat more about what your next steps look like.

Raised in Green Bay, Emily has been a labor and postpartum doula since 2011. Emily’s strength lies in supporting families through the childbearing years, in whatever manner they envision it unfolding. Unbiased and judgment free support are the cornerstones on which Emily has built Green Bay Doulas.

Prior to doula work, Emily worked as a nanny, respite provider and ABA behavioral therapist for 8+ years. She has extensive experience with special needs and children with spectrum disorders.

Emily’s ability to build mutual respect and admiration with providers and hospital administrators has been a tremendous asset to the families she supports. She is a resident member on the board of directors for NeighborWorks Green Bay, and Olde Main. Recently became the Executive Director for the Wisconsin Doulas Association, Inc who’s annual fundraiser is the Green Bay Parenting Expo.

In her down time, you can find Emily probably not wearing shoes!
