Kathryn Keener is the Owner and Director of One Moon Doula, which began in 2013 as a private doula practice and evolved to a boutique agency serving families all over San Diego. She is a Postpartum Doula and a Certified Sleep Coach. She prides herself in cultivating a top-notch team of professional Postpartum Doulas, Newborn Care Specialists, and Sleep Coaches, and matching them with families based on their needs. After supporting a growing team of doulas for over six years, Keener founded The Doula Membership for Postpartum Doulas and NCS’s in order for doulas everywhere to benefit from support, coaching, and professional development.
Kathryn grew up in Virginia near Washington, D.C. and has lived New York, Ecuador, and California. She attended the College of William and Mary, and received her Masters in Conflict Analysis and Resolution from Nova Southeastern University. She worked for 15 years as a Mediator prior to becoming a Postpartum Doula, and her depth of experience with effective communication and dispute resolution has been invaluable in running her business in a way that balances the needs of the families with the quality of life and professional development of the doulas. She now lives in Encinitas, California with her husband, two young sons, and her dog Luna (the only other girl in the house).
