"My mission is to nurture, validate, educate, and empower birthparents and families to seek out and receive the supports they deserve."
Helping people has always given Angela Walker a sense of deep joy and satisfaction.
Her approach to supporting parents is actively listening, validating feelings, and (when asked) offering appropriate resources that have evidence based results.
Angela's goal is to ensure that parents know that their feelings are important, and normal, and that they are not alone!
Angela Walker was born and raised in a small rural Ohio town. She moved to Maryland to start her career in education, where she met her partner, and had her daughter. Her family enjoys sports, music, art, being outside, and reading.
She always hopes for snowy winters, and to one day obtain a Master's degree in social work in order to use the education to advocate for proper perinatal care.
