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

I was young when I had my first child and did not receive prenatal breastfeeding education. When I was pregnant with my second, I made sure to educate myself and went on to breastfeed three children successfully. I had some challenges with my second, but with support from a breastfeeding counselor, we persevered. Support is key!

What excites you most about being an IBCLC?

Offering education and support to assist families in achieving their breastfeeding goals.

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

Hospital inpatient, outpatient, in-person, NICU,  telehealth, phone support

What makes up your family (people & pets)?

My husband and I have four amazing sons, three are adult age, and one is nine. We have a wonderful labradoodle named Penny!

What do you enjoy doing while not at work?

I enjoy crocheting and playing board games with my children.

What state do you reside in?


When did you know you wanted to become an IBCLC?

I worked in a hospital as an OB Tech and obtained my CLC in 2015. It was amazing to be able to help families, and I just knew that I wanted to move on to IBCLC!

Why did you become an IBCLC?

I became an IBCLC because I am passionate about breastfeeding education and helping families achieve their feeding goals.

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

Take the time to slow down and see the world through your children's eyes. You may just find that you have learned something new!
