With fifteen years of experience and a lifelong love of caring for children and families, Marisa has been a treasure to all who engage her services. As a nanny and postpartum doula she has cared for newborns through elementary aged children, twins, and children with special needs. She has also supported mothers with lactation counseling services to help them meet their breastfeeding goals. Marisa trained with ProDoula as a labor and birth doula and postpartum and infant care doula.
Marisa has a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Merchandise Management. Before relocating to Palm Harbor, Florida in 2012, she worked as a postpartum doula for Birthways, the oldest and most respected doula agency in Chicago. She also worked as an assistant at Chicago Montessori School, and ran a small in-home day care to help meet the needs of her community.
Marisa now has three boys of her own. While caring for her young family she also became a successful real estate agent. Her passion for supporting new families and caring for children led her back to birth and postpartum doula work. Nothing fulfills her more than the connections made with families she has cared for. Marisa’s bright and helpful nature will give you the peace of mind you need during this important transition.
