MY Story

My  career started as a RN on a busy labor and delivery floor spending many hours helping new moms learn foundational skills to feel confident breastfeeding their infants. Now a mother of two, I have personally breastfed both of my children. My nursing experiences were difficult and laden with issues that I needed support to overcome.

As an experienced professional in the field, I felt completely overwhelmed. It made me wonder what the average family leaving the hospital with no experience or specialized education must feel. Through the much needed support of a fabulous lactation consultant who has since become a mentor to me, I was able to overcome adversity and breastfeed both children over a year.

The humbling experience of breastfeeding my own children sparked a passion in me to reach out and SUPPORT new moms. My second child had severe infant reflux and at times I felt like I was drowning during her first year. The help I received kept our family afloat.

I am now certified as an IBCLC (international board certified lactation consultant). While I still practice as a bedside RN, I feel a calling to work with women on a more personal level. Breastfeeding, pumping, or even bottling are a large part of the foreign landscape new parents find themselves immersed in. My goal is SUPPORT women so they can feel empowered Regardless of how they choose to feed their babies.

What is an IBCLC?

An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant is an individual that specializes in breastfeeding management. IBCLC’s are certified through an independently accredited board after passing a national exam and completing comprehensive education credits while accruing hands on clinical hours. That is a long winded way of saying IBCLC’s have to do a lot of work to prepare us learn how to SUPPORT mothers.
