International Board Certified Lactation Consultant,
I love caring for moms and babies. Though breastfeeding is a natural process, it doesn't always come naturally, and is a learned skill by both mama and baby. Sometimes challenges arise and I will help offer guidance and support to help you reach your breastfeeding goals. I am well educated, well trained, and full of tips and knowledge to help guide you. I have been a labor/delivery RN for 12 years and have been working full time as a lactation consultant for over 3 years. I am energized by working to help moms achieve their goals, aiming toward support in helping their babies thrive. I am full of joy every time I see the look on a new mama's face when she holds her sweet new babe(s) close and am able to witness the newly gained confidence they find in nurturing their little one(s). I am full of gratitude to have the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing life transition and experience for the families I work with.
I have been married to my amazing husband Joel for 16 years, and we have 4 children. I had very different breastfeeding experiences and challenges to overcome with each of them. Lily (15), Adelyn (13), Joshua (10), and Jack (4) bring immense joy and abounding energy to my life. I also have one fur baby named Chief. I love all outdoor activities, coffee, kombucha, boba, I was a collegiate athlete, and the ocean and mountains call me. I also serve as a mentor for the ministry Embrace Grace.
