An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant for 15 years in the hospital and outpatient setting. The IBCLC standards differ from others who are a lactation counselor or C.L.C.  See the requirements, standards, and testing at  ibcle.org or ilca.org  


Experience in assisting moms and babies with joyful breastfeeding but also challenges such as low milk supply, difficult latch, tongue and lip ties, multiples, breast surgery, adoptive nursing, relactation, exclusive pumping, extended/toddler breastfeeding, LAM/NFP, 

Creating a plan and offering resources to work towards better breastfeeding is my goal.  I want to help communicate and connect other health care providers to the breastfeeding dyad. 

I started my own private practice in September 2014 because I wanted to give more detailed evidence based care and follow up that is often a missing piece in the hospital environment.  Parents need the follow up and support after baby goes home from the hospital or they can fall short of their breastfeeding goals set for their baby.  Providing in home private consults and advice that is specific and tailored to each mom and baby and her family will help provide the advanced breastfeeding care that every mom and baby deserve.
