About The Empowered Mother

Bio

​Hello. I'm Nicole, mama of three girls. I have been serving families for over ten years as an elementary age teacher; 5 years as a Montessori trained head teacher, 5 years teaching in traditional classroom settings, and now homeschooling my oldest two daughters. When I'm not homeschooling or doula-ing, I love traveling near and far. Good food and coffee are quick ways to my heart. I love doing all the things with my little family, aka The Bonilla Bunch.

Q: How much experience do you have?

A: I've been a doula since May 2020, and I love what I do!
