Tally, who is also an art savant, graduated in 2021 from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls with a degree in Art Education and a secondary degree in Fine Arts- Art History & Illustration. Shortly after, she moved to Houston, TX and pursued her dream career as a postpartum doula after almost a decade of nannying. As a postpartum doula, Tally has provided care to women and birth partners during their postpartum return.
Tally came to Brave Beautiful Beginnings with an extensive background in caretaking and education. It was Tally's nannying career that brought her to come to know about doulas and then later, to DONA International for her training and certification as a postpartum doula in 2022.
In the near future, Tally will be earning a holistic nutrition certification, as well as finding ways to incorporate her creativity into her daily work as a postpartum doula.
Tally’s favorite past times are spent outdoors, making art or burying her nose in a book. She loves hiking, meeting new people, going on adventures with her fur baby (Freya) and trying different foods.
