What excites you most about being an IBCLC?

When parents realize they are not alone in their struggle and that they have support and options.

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

Hospital, outpatient, public health, and private practice.

What do you enjoy doing while not at work?

Traveling and going on adventures with my kids.

Please share any additional education or certifications you have.

Bachelor's of Science in Maternal Child Health with a focus in Human Lactation.

What state do you reside in?

South Carolina

When did you know you wanted to become an IBCLC?

When I experienced struggles with my first two children and did not have good support.

Why did you become an IBCLC?

To help parents reach their goals in a non-judgmental setting.

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

To take time and figure out what their lactation goals are without outside influences. Parents sometimes feel judgment and pressure to do something in particular, which can be very stressful.
