The Faces of Our Community

A true community is not just about being geographically close to someone or part of the same social web network. It’s about feeling connected and responsible for what happens. Humanity is our ultimate community, and everyone plays a crucial role.

Yehuda Berg

I am committed to connecting you with the highest quality resources, and in order to best serve you my intention is to continue to build strong relationships within my immediate community of Travelers Rest and the surrounding areas of Upstate South Carolina. This compilation will never be complete. It is continuously growing as our community grows — but it will always include people and businesses who I have connected with and have working relationships with. We have such a beautiful community here in the Upstate that extends further than we realize, and I am honored to be connected to so many beautiful people.

Doula Support

We have a beautiful community of doulas here in the Upstate. If we connect and you don’t feel like I’m the right doula for you, I promise there is someone here that is perfect for your needs. I am happy to share names of doulas who I think you may connect well with… because connection is the most important part of doula support and I want you to have transformative pregnancy, birth and postpartum experiences.
