Jennifer Anderson’s Bio
Jennifer Anderson has lived in Cypress, Texas with her husband, four children ages 8-12, and various pets for the last six years. Born in Arkansas and raised most of her life in Washington State, Jennifer’s love of sunshine brought her back to the south. She has been happily married to her husband KJ for the last 14 years and they have been blessed to expand their family with four amazing children, two who were born at a birth center and two at home.
Jennifer battled infertility and multiple miscarriages which led her to seek out the care of some of the best holistic birth workers around when she became pregnant with her first daughter. It was this group of amazing women who gave her compassionate midwifery and doula support and led Jennifer to have such peaceful, empowering birth experiences.
After Jennifer became a mother, she decided to pursue her new passion and share her love of childbirth and babies with other women by becoming a birth doula. Trained by Childbirth International and Somatic Arts & Sciences Institute’s Madriella program, Jennifer became certified as a birth and postpartum doula. She has served hundreds of families in her community in her role as a doula since then and is currently pursuing her goal of becoming a midwife through ATMMTP. Jennifer eventually hopes to open an independent Christian based birth center that provides prenatal education, doula care, breastfeeding assistance, and midwifery services.
Jennifer enjoys spending her free time reading, gardening, fishing, and traveling with her friends and family. She is active within her church and community and has spent the last decade opening her home up to exchange students, refugees, and foster children from all over the world. She runs various volunteer and charity projects, as well as volunteering at Houston area pregnancy support centers. Jennifer has a passion for supporting women and families and is excited to continue her journey of becoming a midwife so she can expand her impact.

Tammy Spake, Doula
It is difficult to explain what occurs in the labor and delivery process. Whether at home, at a birthing center, or in a hospital, the experience is always miraculous to me. I love being a part of that. In a way that is beyond my own understanding, my training, my natural gifts, and my love of people combine to allow me to fully invest myself in another. This is sacred space, and I am honored to share it with those I am given the opportunity to serve.
I am passionate about women, about babies, and about birth experiences full of respect and dignity. My goal is to help make this happen. I have been blessed to help women giving birth for over 13 years, but only officially trained as a doula two years ago. The added information has only increased my passion to be a part of this wonderful event in the lives of people here in Nacogdoches, and the surrounding area.
I am a wife to Scotty, and a mom to Hazel, Hannah, William and Levi. I am an amateur photographer, a travel agent, and a minister. I love people. I love animals. And I love opportunities to help.
Kylee Vondra RYT-200, RPYT
Kylee was raised in the East Texas town of Grapeland. At 17, she moved to the Florida Keys to pursue her passions for diving. Along the journey she found herself over worked, while dealing with unsolvable GI issues. On a quest to find peace and healing, she gave yoga a try and never looked back. After six years of practicing she decided to take a teacher training with Keepers of the Earth Yoga Teacher School, ran by Grant Ifflander. The training came, while once again, on a healing journey after a compressed fracture in her lumbar spine and broken left tibia. The training left her stronger than before the injuries and ready teach!
Kylee has recently been inspired to take up a Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training, as she is growing her first child and is gleefully embracing the road to motherhood! This training is taught by Online Yoga School, of the Yoga and Ayurveda Center, ran by Steph.
Kylee is traditionally Hatha (pronounced ha-ta) trained with extensive passions for Pranayama (breath work). In each class you can expect a flow that mimics the natural progression of life. We start with the breath (a short pranayama practice). Then beginning to move slow and low to the ground. Making our way to standing, increasing the pace and heat. To finally finding ourselves on the ground, back where we started from. We will enjoy rest at the end of each class.
“Breath is Guru!”
