Helping families all feel supported through the lactation journey! It does not just effect the lactating parent and baby! I love being able to support, educate, and assist with this special time in people's lives.
Hospital, NICU, Postpartum Unit, and in-home care.

I became an IBCLC because I saw the need to support women prenatally and postpartum. I saw the need for educating healthcare professionals and society about the benefits of breastmilk and the importance of infant feeding methods.
Breastfeeding/pumping is not always easy! If this were all easy, I wouldn't have a job!
Originally pursuing a Master’s in Occupational Therapy, I quickly fell in love with infant development and infant feeding. I love that I can apply my Occupational Therapy background to my lactation career. I am the lead lactation consultant at my local hospital, specializing in the NICU and postpartum units. Supporting families in the newborn stage and transition to home is a big passion of mine. Advocating for optimal breastfeeding outcomes allows me to be a voice in my community. I feel so lucky to be a part of the Nest team! Ready to give you the BREAST care!
