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

I enjoyed breastfeeding both of my children very much! I love the euphoric feeling that came over me every time I would breastfeed. This feeling gave me such delight in knowing that I was bonding with my children and providing them both with the very best for growth, development, and life.

What excites you most about being an IBCLC?

Being there for mom in those moments of sudden inspiration, insight, recognition, or comprehension. When all the breastfeeding information and commitment clicks and mom is surprised at herself. It is those moments that excite me the most – because it is at that point mom’s breastfeeding journey is what she hoped it would be.

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

Outpatient, home-visits, virtual, and telephonic

What makes up your family (people & pets)?

My husband, son, daughter, and cat.

What do you enjoy doing while not at work?

Cooking (cooking for others), exercising, reading, and spending time with family/friends.

Please share any additional education or certifications you have.

  • Certified Family Health Coach
  • Certified Early Childhood Educator

What state do you reside in?

Maryland

When did you know you wanted to become an IBCLC?

After the birth of my son.

Why did you become an IBCLC?

I became an IBCLC to help educate moms/parents on the benefits of breastfeeding and to help moms/parents as much as I can to be successful in their breastfeeding journey. Often times moms/parents are left feeling overwhelmed, alone and unsure of what is the best way to feed their baby. I am here to help moms/parents sort it all out and to help her/them feel okay about their choices.

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

To pause, take a breath, do not be scared, and be confident in their body's ability to do what it is meant to do. I would provide my parents with this advice because parents are overwhelmed with so much information, whether on social media, Google, or from well-intended friends and family, that they can lose sight of what their goals are for breastfeeding. By allowing parents to pause, regroup, and focus - they can then become in tune with their body and their breastfeeding goals for their baby. So, "book" a session with me, and let’s get started!
