What excites you most about being an IBCLC?

Helping with problem-solving: breastfeeding may be natural, but it isn't always easy. Sometimes, when we move around the puzzle pieces of life, we can better understand what's happening and create a plan on how to fix it.

In what types of settings have you supported patients in lactation?

Hospital (Mother/Baby & NICU), outpatient, home visits

What makes up your family (people & pets)?

I'm the youngest of 3 daughters, but I have a pup named Cocoa, who I rescued in 2018

What do you enjoy doing while not at work?

I enjoy moving! So I can be doing yoga, running, or practicing Aerial arts

Please share any additional education or certifications you have.

Certified Birth Doula

What state do you reside in?

North Carolina

When did you know you wanted to become an IBCLC?

When I was a birth doula, I had clients that I helped latch, however, some of my "basic" breastfeeding support skills were not always solving the problem. I also noticed a trend of clients not feeling as prepared for their breastfeeding journey as we prepared for labor and delivery

Why did you become an IBCLC?

I recognized a lot of members in my community needed assistance and didn't know where to go. I also believe that my abilities to move into the role of someone who could be in healthcare helped motivate me to take the next step and advocate for my patients

What do you wish you could tell every parent (that they would actually do) and why?

Stay hydrated and eat plenty of good food while you're breastfeeding! I promise you it makes a world of difference to make sure you're recovering comfortably
