Change has been in the air over the past few months here in the SMDP family, and hopefully we're wrapping up the last of it! Before we introduce our new directors, we would like to take a moment to say goodbye to the wonderful Chelsea! Chelsea is stepping down as director for SMDP and taking on new adventures of her own! With two children under 4, Chelsea has created a BOOMING Etsy shop that sells homemade toys and creations handmade by this lovely goddess. Her family is going through some amazing changes and we couldn't be happier for or more proud of her as she begins this new chapter of her life! In light of her new awesome adventures, we would like to welcome our new co-directors, Madeline Higgins (left) and Brynne Curtis (right). Madeline and Brynne have both been working with us on our board as well as volunteer doulas, and are incredibly excited to serve you and our community as new co-directors. Madeline is working as a Community Center Manager at the University of Michigan, and Brynne is getting her masters of science in Health Education and Health Promotion at Eastern Michigan University. The both have a strong and deep passion for birth, women's rights, support, and advocacy, and we couldn't think of anyone better to serve our community! Welcome, Brynne and Madeline!
