Pauletta Hansel, Cincinnati Poet Laureate Emeritus
The poems of Erica Manto Paulson come about as close as language can take us to a second look at childhood
David Lee Garrison, poet, professor, and author
She is a doula, a midwife assistant, an educator. She trains and mentors doulas. You won't find who has the breadth and depth of her experience.
