Saumu is originally from Kenya. A mom of three, she always wanted to work to help support her family. After training to become a doula, Saumu struggled to find employment after the pandemic. She worked a series of jobs to get by but had trouble finding one that provided for her family and fulfilled her. She missed her career as a doula. She reached out to PA Women Work and received one-on-one career coaching that helped strengthen her resume and streamline her job applications. She is back to working as a birth doula, doing what she loves.
