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

My own personal breastfeeding history included difficulty with latching, mastitis, a lip tie, and returning to a rigorous work schedule.  The goals I set as a new mom would not have been possible without the support of breastfeeding experts.

What excites you most about being an IBCLC?

Empowering and educating families.

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

Hospital in/outpatient, Private, Home, Telehealth, and Prenatal/Postpartum Groups

What makes up your family (people & pets)?

I am a mom to three amazing children, ages 31, 25, and 12.

What do you enjoy doing while not at work?

Gardening, thrifting, traveling, and mentoring teen and tween girls.

Please share any additional education or certifications you have.

B.S. Chemistry, M.Ed., Doula

What state do you reside in?


When did you know you wanted to become an IBCLC?

I began supporting families as a WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor and fell deeply in love with this work. As soon as I learned there was another level of education and experience I could obtain to help "more," I began pursuing certification.

Why did you become an IBCLC?

To be a soft space for new families to land while empowering them with education and support along their journey.

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

Educate yourself during the prenatal period. It helps build confidence as a parent and allows you to have the opportunity to create a better plan for birth. 

Set up support prior to the arrival of your baby and know when and how you will be supported.

Also, remember that as you grow your beautiful baby, your baby is growing you too. Enjoy the journey.
