I'm a huge fan of the Brené Brown quote:
"We don't have to do it all alone. We were never meant to..."
I am a devoted DIY-er. I see something at a craft fair? I want to make it myself. I taste a great meal at a restaurant? I'll cook it myself next time. I see a fabulous dress at a shop? I can find a pattern for that!
In this realm of web design and online marketing, however, it makes complete sense to have the expert guides you need, so that your investment can truly grow your practice.
With that in mind, I've featured some of my favorite people to help with your website copy, branding & logo, social media, systems set-up and more. New SEO resource coming soon!

MEET ALISON: My administrative doula!
Since 2013 Alison has been an amazing support to my work as The Website Doula. She actually shares a similar birth to coding journey as I do. Following the birth of her first child in 2005 (I instructed her prenatal class way back when I was a childbirth educator!), she began to sell homebirth supplies online and taught herself code. From there, she fell in love with both self-employment and web design.
Along with life as my "administrative doula", Alison and her husband manage a family business and homeschool their three children.
