Lobbying since: 2021
Jasmyne is the owner of Jazzy Bean Doula LLC providing birth, postpartum, sibling, and sleep doula care to the community. Like many intuitive caregivers, Jasmyne has always cared deeply for everything around her.
Early on she discovered the power of nourishing bonds and openhearted support in building resilience and self determination. Inspired by these relationships Jasmyne got a bachelor's degree in Society, Ethics, and Human Behavior from UW Bothell. Informed by her lived experience and education, Jasmyne became a passionate thinker and organizer around racial, reproductive, and LGBTQIA+ justice. After the death of activist Erica Garner, daughter of Eric Garner, Jasmyne was confronted with the realities of Black perinatal health disparities and the importance of Black doula care in improving perinatal outcomes for all birthing people. Jasmyne found her purpose in supporting people through intense and tender transitions as a doula and takes this philosophy of care into all her work.
When Jasmyne is not working as a doula and organizer she is focusing on the transformative power of art and study. She loves reading and learning, talking and laughing, writing and performing, painting and collaging. Proudly fixating on whatever new thing is inspiring her at any given moment, Jasmyne is always thinking of new ways to foster more caring futures.
