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

I breastfed all three of my kiddos for about 3-4 years each. I really enjoyed breastfeeding and felt very blessed to have made it through all the challenges we had.

What excites you most about being an IBCLC?

I love to be a part of something that is so empowering and helpful to families. Anything that will help parents have an easier transition into parenthood and reduce the struggle always gives me such joy.

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

I have helped mothers in the hospital and NICU primarily but also outpatient, private practice and volunteer work as a La Leche League Leader.

What makes up your family (people & pets)?

I am married to Scott and have three kids - Cedric, Kellie and Blake. We have two dogs, a Pembroke Corgi and American Staffordshire Terrier.

What do you enjoy doing while not at work?

Spending time with my family, gardening and home projects.

Please share any additional education or certifications you have.

I have a Bachelor's in Nursing

What state do you reside in?

Oklahoma

When did you know you wanted to become an IBCLC?

After having my first child, I worked with the best LC and knew then I wanted to be an IBCLC one day.

Why did you become an IBCLC?

I loved breastfeeding my children and wanted other parents to experience the beauty of feeding their child in the most natural way. When my firstborn was 1 year old, I began the pathway to becoming an IBCLC.

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

You are the expert of your child and always listen to your heart. There is so much misinformation out there, so learn from reliable resources/books before you begin your journey. You will get lots of advice as soon as your belly begins to show, if you listen to your heart and know the facts, you will find it much easier to navigate all that is out there (and there is a lot!!). Peace and love to you all!
