Mandy is based in Los Angeles. She has served as a teacher, educational mentor, and administrator in Los Angeles and abroad. Mandy has traveled and lived all over the globe and claims the world as her classroom. She is a certified childbirth educator as well as a birth and postpartum doula. Mandy has a degree in liberal studies (education) with an emphasis in Spanish, which she went on to study further in Guatemala and Argentina.
Mandy declares emphatically, “My most important journey yet has been that of parenthood. My children make me a better person every day.” Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Mandy feels a deep sense of commitment to the earth and loves to get out in nature. She loves camping with her family, long walks on the beach, and traveling to places off the beaten path. While the nature girl in her begs for soil beneath her bare feet, the city girl in her loves spending the day at an art museum, the rare but savored concert, or her ultimate guilty pleasure, a few hours in a theater watching a musical (the more bursts into song, the better)!
