From a young age, I knew I wanted to help others. In my teenage years I worked as a lifeguard, nanny and daycare assistant teacher. I loved working with babies for as long as I can remember. I continued with this path and went to college for nursing. In 2014 I became a Registered Nurse. I worked in many different areas and departments trying to round out my skills and experiences, but I soon realized my true passion after having my first child. My son Theodore was born in 2018 and since then I have dedicated all my extra time to becoming a lactation consultant. I accomplished this dream and became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in 2020.
Now at this stage in my personal motherhood journey, I have had 3 very different feeding experiences. I have breastfed, I have pumped and bottle fed, and I have formula fed. I have gone through so many ups and downs, experiencing the thrills of success and the chaos with all the doubts. I have learned so much since becoming a mother and lactation consultant; I know that every pregnancy and baby's needs are very different. I have found that being as prepared as you can be by learning as much as you can is truly the way to have the most successful outcome in your feeding journey.
I am very passionate about women's health and wanting all parents to have the 1 on 1 feeding education and support from a professional healthcare provider. My goal is to have all pregnant women and their significant others prepared with a feeding plan prior to their baby's arrival so that when they walk into the labor and delivery room they feel confident in how to answer the question of, "Will you be breastfeeding your baby?". Whether your answer to that question is yes or no, I want you to have the answer ready and feel assured that it is the right one for you and your family.
