Please share anything you'd like from your own personal breastfeeding experience.

I had no idea there was a difference between breast milk and formula with my first child. We struggled with intolerance to a number of formulas. I learned everything I could about how to make breastfeeding work and successfully breastfed my 2nd and 3rd child for almost 2 years each, even through several challenges.

What excites you most about being an IBCLC?

I love educating families and seeing their bond with their baby and confidence grow as new parents.

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

WIC, Public Health, Hospital Inpatient and Outpatient and teaching Breastfeeding classes.

What makes up your family (people & pets)?

My husband and I have a blended family of 5 adult children, 3 grandchildren, and our Siamese cat, Maisie.

What do you enjoy doing while not at work?

Walking, biking, camping, crafting and working with my husband on our many projects.

Please share any additional education or certifications you have.

Bachelor of Science in Nursing

What state do you reside in?


When did you know you wanted to become an IBCLC?

Working with mothers in the WIC Program. Many thought I already was an IBCLC and I have such a great passion for breastfeeding it just made sense to pursue it.

Why did you become an IBCLC?

It has been my life's passion to be sure that all mothers I work with have the ability to make informed choices about how they feed their baby and have the support they need to meet their feeding goals.

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

Breastfeeding is natural, but there is a learning curve for mom and for baby. It is so much easier to make this journey with support. Reach out as early and often as you can. You will be so glad you did!
