I’m so excited to work with the Village because of all the experiences I’ll receive, connections I’ll make, and the feeling of making a difference

I started my practicum (similar to an internship) at The Village, a perinatal support network, without knowing anything about pregnancy, postpartum, infant loss, adoption, or anything else related to those experiences. My boss who has turned into a mentor a friend, Taryn, was a total rockstar and gave me so much to read, watch, and observe that I fell in love with the mission of the Village. So much so that I decided to stay there another year. Currently, I help facilitate a support group and have met some of the sweetest souls. I am excited to see where this experience leads me.
