Erika came to care for my sister and support our family when Katy was dying last year. Erika is so compassionate to anyone who needs help and has a lot of experience serving different needs for different people. She made sure that Katy’s decisions about her own end of life plans were advocated for, communicated them clearly to our family, and made sure they were carried out by Katy’s healthcare team. She spoke softly to Katy and created a calming and nurturing environment for her to be at peace. After seeing firsthand how comforted Katy and the rest of the family felt, I know that Erika would make a good doula for any family.
