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

I have personal experience with extended breastfeeding and tandem nursing.

What excites you most about being an IBCLC?

My favorite thing about being an IBCLC is meeting families where they are while having the opportunity to empower and educate, equipping them to make informed decisions with confidence.

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

I have supported families as an IBCLC and RN in the labor and delivery unit, birth center, postpartum floor, leading support groups, and back-to-work classes.

What makes up your family (people & pets)?

I share my home with a wonderful husband, two beautiful children, and a sweet pup.

What do you enjoy doing while not at work?

I love gardening, exploring the city and nature, and traveling, while spending time with family and friends.

Please share any additional education or certifications you have.

I have been a registered nurse for 18 years.

What state do you reside in?


When did you know you wanted to become an IBCLC?


Why did you become an IBCLC?

As soon as I realized being a lactation consultant was something you could do, I knew it was something I wanted to do. My previous work was as a pediatric nurse, so I understood that if I could help families give their babies the best nutrition from the start, I could promote child health from the very beginning. At the time, I didn't even realize all the benefits to mothers and families!

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

Answer the baby's feeding cues and bids for attention, they have a need. It's okay for someone to hold their baby a lot, you are just weaning them from being held 24/7. You can't spoil your baby!
