After my son was admitted to the NICU and after experiencing feeding challenges of my own, I went back to school to become an RN and IBCLC to help other families.
It's such an honor to be able to share space with families during such a sensitive and intimate time. I love educating, empowering, and supporting families during their unique feeding journey.
I have supported families in birth centers, hospitals, NICU, outpatient, and private practice.
I love hiking, traveling, theatre and art. I also teach pre and postnatal pilates, and I am a Reiki practitioner.
BS in Nursing, Registered Nurse, and BA in Theatre Arts
After my son was admitted to the NICU, I knew I was learning a lot and wanted to share it with others.
I became an IBCLC because of my own feeding challenges with my child. I was getting conflicting information about how/when to feed from different care providers. I became an IBCLC because I wanted to care for families in ways that I was cared for and in the ways I was not cared for. Human milk feeding is based on research and science, which needs to be given to families to empower and educate them. This will help them to make their own unique feeding plan.
When a child is born, a parent is born. You will be a new you, and so will your partner. Life is too short to compare your new body, parenting choices, and feeding choices with others. Comparison is the root of all evil. Practice losing that parent guilt now- it's a waste of time. You do you.
