Meet the Team
As a Cayaba Care Member, you will have your own personal Maternity Navigator, who is part of a Care Team of maternity experts who will be with you throughout your entire pregnancy journey and postpartum.
The Care Team is supported by a team of central business, technology, and administrative staff that provide the infrastructure for them to be able to deliver care in modern, thoughtful, and innovative ways.
Care Team Roles
Your Maternity Navigators
About me: Enjoying quality time with my family and friends. Also cooking, traveling, finding new nature walks, meditating, yoga, watching documentaries and EATING!!
I absolutely love interacting with my patients, providing information and support, and just being that caring hand that is much needed.
About me: These days my hobbies include online shopping and watching tv! I also love sewing, especially women’s evening gowns.
Over the last 16 years, I have worked in OBGYN and centering pregnancy, maternal fetal medicine and family planning. Being able to give care, support and education is what's important.
About me: I am a trained Postpartum Doula and Postpartum Peer. I enjoy spending time with my loved ones and indulging in self care.
It’s my passion to make sure that people receive equitable care by their medical providers, resources from their community, and education to make their own informed decisions. It’s an honor to be of service to you during your pregnancy and beyond. It truly takes a village.
About me: Over the last 25 years, I've worked in OB/GYN, Family Planning, and Centering Pregnancy. I am passionate about educating women on birth control choices so they feel empowered and confident about their choices.
I have two children and one grandson. I enjoy traveling, eating, and making blue crabs!! Lol
From Philadelphia, PA
About me: I am a full spectrum doula, lactation counselor, and childbirth educator specializing in working with teenage women, first-time parents, and families in recovery.
Providing village empowerment has become the foundation of my career path, and I am thankful for the privilege to do what I love everyday.
From Philadelphia, PA
About me: In my free time I enjoy traveling, doing hair and makeup and spending time with family and friends. I am also a full time cat foster mom working to provide shelter and care for animals at risk for euthanasia.
It is important to me to assist in bridging the gap in maternity care by providing a personalized care plan to help educate, empower and support our members.
I am a mommy of two beautiful boys that are 11! While my big boy is sweet as pie, my little baby gives me a run for my money. When I am not chasing my little ones, or laughing with my eldest, I love a good meal and to binge watch shows!
Statistically, women of color are less likely to receive the care that they need and are often left feeling unheard. I hope to be the person pregnant people can come to when they have questions, do not feel heard, or need a listening ear.
Your Care Team
