Bio: Naomi D. Williams is a perfectly imperfect person on a mission to empower individuals and families to live their best life, now. As a Life Doula, she helps people navigate and process major life altering events. Naomi believes anyone and everyone can and should lead an exceptional life. Naomi uses her experiences as a grief coach and yoga instructor to inform her work as an advocate and systems navigator. When not advocating for her family or others, you can find Naomi getting lost exploring nature or taking a deep breath on her yoga mat.
