A little about me! 


Sojourn: stay somewhere temporarily.

Motherhood is no easy journey, but I am committed to support you through this transformational time, whether it’s with my visual art or my emotional and physical support.

Who am I?

I am a Mexican-American artist and doula raised in the RGV. Mother of 5 beautiful babies.

I believe there is a fiery mama bear in every mother.

My sister and I can narrate our lives with random Disney songs or movie quotes. 

Black and white photographs move me with their timeless simplicity. 

I probably watch way too much reality tv... seriously, way too much.  I then balance my reality tv shows with documentaries about sustainable living and tiny houses. 

I've been told I'm “crunchy” far too many times to count. 

I believe EVERY child deserves a forever family. Adoption/Foster Care are both very near and dear to me.

I often appear to have a rock solid shell, but really, I'm just a really sentimental mama who adores her 5 babies.

No matter how or where you choose to birth, I am committed to offering you emotional, physical and informational support as you navigate this new season of your life.
