I am writing this letter to recognize the great appreciation and acknowledgement I would like to give to Melissa for her hard work. Melissa loves to teach and share her passion about the role of a doula. She has volunteered her time this year since September she would come twice a month to share her expertise. She is passionate and driven and assures to always to acknowledge the importance of collaboration in a multi-disciplinary team and how we all work together to ensure best outcome for clients. I teach third and fourth year nursing students and they always provide feedback on how astonishing her presentation is. As students they are not clear on the defined role of doulas and midwives so Melissa clearly identifies that to them. She is compassionate I have seen her in her role as a doula support with her families she demonstrates a love and is so caring with her families. She is respectful and devoted to assuring that the patient is receiving the highest quality of care. I cannot say enough on how wonderful she has been to work with. If you need any further recommendations I would be happy to do so. Please contact me directly if needed.
