DeAnna started her journey into birth work in 2010 as a Baby Planner. From Baby Planning, she began increasing her knowledge, becoming a Certified Child Safety Educator, Certified Doula, and Perinatal Bereavement Specialist. DeAnna is an Advocate for the March of Dimes, she's currently a member of the State of WI F.I.M.R (fetal infant mortality review committee), M.E.A.C (midwifery education accreditation council) on the Clinical Training Taskforce along with Wisconsin Guild of Midwives, in which she has assisted in bringing ICTC to Wisconsin for 15 women of color to gain Full Circle Doula Training. These women have also completed CPR & NRP courses. Together we have formulated the Wisconsin Doulas of Color Collective. Within the collective we have also gained DONA training. DeAnna is also on the Political Advocacy board for the Wisconsin Guild of Midwives, in which they are actively fighting for reimbursement of licensed Midwives under Medicaid in the State of Wisconsin. With all that being said, DeAnna is currently a student midwife serving the underrepresented communities here in the State of Wisconsin.
