I was called to birth work when I was 13 years old. Growing up as a missionary kid I remember hearing of women and babies dying in childbirth or soon after because of a simple lack of information. It filled me with a passion to help. I have walked various paths during my life all leading to where I am now. I began working as a doula in 2017 and founded this ministry, Voices of Eve. God has brought me to a turning point in my life, family, and work. A year ago I heard God whispering to me, “Tell Your Story”. I earnestly explored what He might mean by that. I found myself telling my mother on her death bed, “I will tell your story”, and I knew from then on my life would never be the same. And it hasn’t been. My parents started their ministry in Kenya Africa in 2020, with my mother gone, and my father recovering from a stroke i found a wide open pathway in front of me. My father, my husband, and I founded a new ministry in my mother’s honor. We named it Akiru Ministries after her Kenyan, Turkana name. In that ministry I will begin to fullfill the calling I recieved at 13 years old. And all that I have learned as a doula will be a benefit to continue serving women in need.

Growing up as a missionary kid in Africa taught me that education, life, and human rights are precious and should be guarded, developed, and shared.
My own Births taught me that everyone should have proper education, support, and advocacy, not just those with an abundance of resources.
My clients teach me every day that the human spirit is resilient, remarkable, shapable, and can exceed expectations.
My work teaches me humility, wonder, and passion. I see time and time again that my work is essential because my clients are essential.
