Juanita is a native Texan who calls the Byron, MN countryside her home. She, her husband of 14 years, and 3 children enjoy life on a hobby farm and outdoor activities. While not an expert farmer, nor a green thumb, she has fun involving her kids and learning new things. A passion of hers is supporting families through their childbirth and breastfeeding journeys. She is a doula, Lamaze instructor and lactation counselor. You can learn more about her work at Nurtured Momma. She loves motherhood, its sacredness and its life-lessons. Most days, she loves the challenge of creating meals from whatever ingredients are left in the kitchen (or garden). She often joins her husband on DIY projects around the house and farm. Other things she likes are warm beverages, yoga, thrift shopping and fun with family and friends.
