I am a mom of three children, all of whom I breastfed. Currently, still breastfeeding my youngest, who just turned one! I started breastfeeding my first child, not knowing very much. During that journey with her, I learned a lot! It’s truly where my love for breastfeeding started. I understand and am empathetic to both the joys and difficulties that can come with the breastfeeding journey.
I love being able to help not only guide but empower families on their lactation journey! I love being a part of the exciting moments when things are going well and improving, but also helping families find their voice in their journey. Helping them through the difficult parts is what really makes me love what I do.
In-hospital, NICU, outpatient
My husband, Jake, and our three sweet girls - Reagan, Oaklyn & Gemma.
I love spending time outside with my family. You can find us out there most days, especially when the weather is nice! When I get a few moments to myself, I love a good mystery novel and maybe some shameless binge-watching of old Grey’s Anatomy episodes.
I knew I wanted to specialize in lactation after the birth of my first daughter. I was a labor & delivery nurse at the time and had helped moms with breastfeeding countless times, but I never really knew all the work that went into that journey until I started it myself.
I truly became an IBCLC to help families feel confident in their lactation journey. I want to help them celebrate the successes and goals met and want to walk alongside them through the bumps along the way. I want families to feel heard and listened to, empowering them to feel like they have a voice in their feeding journey!
I want families to feel supported with absolutely no pressure. I want families to be able to ask for help or tell me when things aren’t working, knowing there is no judgment! This is your journey, and I am here to make it the best one possible!
