Melissa Yates

I grew up in Illinois, married Craig and lived in New Zealand for 17 years, and then moved to Florida in 2005. Craig and I have 3 adult children. After being mom at home and home schooling for many years, I knew I needed a new passion and direction in life. I trained as a birth and postpartum doula and completed a 7 month doula mentorship program. I love this new stage in life, serving families as they bring babies into the world. I also love walking, swimming, and being involved with my church.
