About Me

As a public health professional with a background in maternal child health

nursing, I bring a range of skills and expertise to my lactation practice.

I have supported families in hospitals, communities, and homes for over

20 years.

Equity and inclusion are core values to my work. I am deeply committed to improving health equity and improving maternity and postpartum care in the United States.  I served as an Americorps member, a Nurse Family Partnership Nurse Home Visitor, and a public health student volunteer in West Africa. I participated in multiple breastfeeding initiatives during my graduate work with the NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene.  

I became a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) in 2008, and an IBCLC in 2010.  I have been in private practice as a lactation consultant since 2013. I also work in the hospital setting as a lactation consultant. I have worked with hundreds of families, and what I enjoy most about this work is educating families so that they feel empowered in their parenting choices. I love to see the confidence develop in new parents as they become an expert in their own baby. The first few months of parenting can be challenging, and I would love to help you on your parenthood journey.

I am grateful to all of the teachers I have had along the way, and especially all the families that I work with everyday.
