Doula & artist
Jo Kucala (she/her)
I'm the doula and artist behind Artfully Empowered.
I first was introduced into the rich world of henna in 2008. It brought me to a beautiful community of artists, and continues to connect me to the world around me. I am forever grateful for this humble plant. Then, in 2017 after the incredibly empowering birth of my second son, a passion for birth work ignited inside of me. I have experienced first hand how having complete trust with a doula can make a huge difference in the birthing space, and that is why I am devoted to supporting families from all walks of life during this transition in life.
In 2019 my love for art was rediscovered. I expanded and explored different mediums, which brought me to carving and watercolor. I am looking forward to continue on this journey, and so happy you are here to join me!
On my days off, you can find me at home in Spring Lake Park with my husband, two vivacious boys, and dog. Besides birth and art, I enjoy hiking, camping, reading, anything crafty, puzzles, and gardening!
