ALEXIS Co-Facilitator

Alexis is a mama to two kiddos, and became passionate about supporting women in the motherhood transition after having her first baby and experiencing an intense sense of isolation, grieving the loss of traditional support systems for families we lack in our culture today. She’s been on a journey exploring it all through education -- birth doula training, becoming a Birthfit coach and a postpartum doula. With a degree in nutrition, nourishing the new family in all facets (mind, body and soul) has become her mission and is looking forward to providing a safe space for mothers to feel seen, heard and embraced by a community who gets it, and deeply desires them to know they are not alone.

Lacey Mund Facilitator

Lacey Mund is a Navy Spouse and mom of six- three bonus children and three carbon copies. Being a mom is a huge part of her identity and many of her passions have evolved through motherhood, such as; breastfeeding, childbirth education and mental health.

Lacey became passionate about mental health through her own journey and struggles with postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety. She has a heart for helping others and an educational background in Organizational Leadership and Resource Management. She worked professionally in healthcare for the past 3 years up until the birth of her last son 9 months ago. She's been a military spouse for one year and although there are several challenges, it's opened up many doors and created strong bonds and friendships.

 

Her goal is to help put an end to the stigma and shame that still surrounds mental illness. To be a safe space where mothers can connect and share each other's experiences and burdens.

Lacey said, "I'm embracing the opportunity to help empower mothers and focus my attention on the military community here in Kitsap. This organization is a resource our mamas need. It's already given so many women hope and a sense of community. We need more support during pregnancy and especially after. I feel honored to be a small part of something that has the potential to benefit millions."
