Julie Le is a certified birth doula (DONA) and a microbiologist in Austin, Texas. Julie comes from a background rooted in scientific research - she has a Bachelor's of Science from St. Edwards University and works as a microbiologist for the Texas Department of State Health Services. Julie began volunteering with Giving Austin Labor Support (GALS) in 2015 and certified as a doula in 2016. GALS provides free labor support to women on Medicaid or in financial need.
