We’d like you to get to know Emily Tokarczyk, one of our fabulous instructors here at MAYA Organization. Emily teaches MAYA prenatal classes at Highlands Family Center in Tarentum and in our Swissvale office. She also helps our office run smoothly. Here’s a little bit more about her:
What inspires you?
I’m inspired by justice, or lack thereof. I feel a drive or inspiration to care-take. I’m inspired by seeing others do good work in the world.
I love moms and babies. I love science and biology and having the experience of witnessing a transformational biological experience.
What’s the last book you read?
Tom Brown’s Wilderness Survival for Children. I read it to my kids. One of my kids is really interested in wilderness survival.
I’ve known Tomi for quite a while… since we were birth doulas together at the Birth Circle. Working at MAYA is a great opportunity to work with mothers and babies, teach prenatal classes, and work with other doulas.
