Growing up in Alhambra, CA, Kylie was surrounded by extended family of all ages. She learned to be social, caring, and responsible from her elders, cousins, and siblings alike. As time passed, she started babysitting for friends and family and has been the go-to sitter since. At the time she did not know it, but a passion was growing. After five years of fundraising for the nonprofit organization, March of Dimes, she knew she wanted to be more hands on. That desire lead her straight to a DONA birth doula training, and shortly after postpartum doula training. Her passion to care for babies and children grows everyday and she cannot wait to support new and growing families!
