Alisha Papadem

Alisha spent 6 years as a nanny and 8 years in customer service. She worked with a wide variety of families with very different needs, which has made her versatile and flexible. Working in the customer service field has taught her professionalism and non-judgmental support. These skills allow her to better serve families.
After the birth of her first son she learned about doulas and choose to hire one for the birth of her second son. That experience only intensified Alisha’s goal of becoming a doula herself to provide the same support to families.
Upon learning what a doula was, Alisha realized she had been doula-ing most of her life. Even before having her own children, her friends called her for advice and support in all things pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and parenting.
Alisha is the mother of 3 beautiful children, 1 step-daughter and 2 sons, and has been with her wonderfully supportive partner for 6 years. Her hobbies include reading, watching movies, painting, swimming, and video games. She recently moved to Florida from Pennsylvania.
