Amber Star Merkens

Postpartum Doula

Newborn/Parenting Educator

Lactation Counselor (CLC)

Most of my life was spent in the performing arts, traveling the world with a dance company, and photographing my journeys. But having children shifted my perspective and revealed a new calling. I wanted to create the community and support that I myself longed for around as a new mother. Through my own story, and those of women around me, I came to understand the significance of what is probably the most profound, yet so often undervalued, life change a person can experience - the transition into motherhood, and parenthood. It’s the birth that comes after childbirth. Just like childbirth, the “4th trimester” is an intense, life altering, and vulnerable time when we are born as as mothers and fathers. We question everything as we find our new normal, learn and grow in unfathomable ways, and are catapulted into the unknown. It is a time when we need others to encourage us, advocate for us, lift us up, and celebrate with us. My passion and joy lies in providing a safe haven for families, giving them the compassion and unconditional support they deserve as they navigate all the newness. I am am grateful to have have been working intimately with families for almost a decade, and I look forward to working with many more.

Krissy Shields

Pregnancy Coach

Yoga Instructor

Fitness Coach

Support Group Facilitator

Health Coach

To be totally transparent, I would rather talk about my kids than me any day. Here is something that is not a secret, I am a passionate mama. Here’s a secret, I love it and hate it at times too. Some days, I have felt totally vital and of complete service but I have also felt drained and lost in my role as a mama and a teacher. It is a balancing act. A daily check in of where am I? How am I? What can I do to set myself in alignment to what matters most, each day. That is the key. Each day offers us something new.

Sharon Kon

Videographer

Photographer

I’m Sharon, a wife, mom, daughter, friend, newborn filmmaker and quintessential storyteller. I have always been passionate about living life, chasing dreams, and enjoying the journey of it all. In 2017, I left my corporate 9 to 5 to chase my dream—launching my own production company, Lovelight Pictures. ​Thank God for my husband, my numero-uno supporter, who essentially threatened me, that if I didn’t follow my dreams, he would stop talking to me. Well, needless to say, I took a leap of faith. Little did I know, I also found out I was having my very own baby a.k.a little dumpling. The greatest days in my life was the day I had my newborn. When I see my baby girl, I see a miracle. She melts my heart when she falls asleep in my arms or when she flashes her radiant smile. I love hearing her coo and listening to her raucous laughs—matter of fact, this has become the inspiration for our newborn services—coo, gurgle and babble. As I tried to capture these newborn memories for myself, my “eureka” moment occurred. Why not preserve similar newborn and family memories for other moms and dads? And that’s how I gave birth to Little Dumpling Films! I want to help families preserve their baby's moments that they can cherish forever—because the one thing you don’t get back is time.

Panos Ioannou

Acupuncturist

Health and wellness have been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember. I always tagged along with my mom Saturday mornings to the health food store and chiropractor. She taught me how important it was to take care of my body and mind naturally. Looking back, I am grateful for her persistence because it lead me to study Nutrition in college. There I began to truly understand the transformative and healing power of holistic medicine, specifically Traditional Chinese Medicine. I gravitated towards classes like Point Location, Pulse and Tongue Diagnostics, Oriental Medicine Theory and Herbal Medicine and went farther to pursue a Masters in Traditional Oriental Medicine. Acuworx is the culmination of two decades of experience in the art of acupuncture and helping thousands of patients. Here, I have turned my passion into practice and invite you to join me on a journey to help you achieve a higher level of wellness and health.
