I have been a lactation consultant for two years, prior to obtaining my certification I was a student for Occupational Therapy. My Occupational Therapy background encouraged me to seek a career in lactation through learning what makes a child reach important milestones. What fascinated me is learning about how much infant development can be impacted through feeding. I found a deep passion for assisting families in their infant feeding methods. I am the Lead Lactation Consultant at my local hospital where I advocate for all patients needs and collaborate with health care team members to assist in guiding parents towards their preferred feeding methods. I emphasize the importance of individualized care, where each baby and each breast is different. I assist in supporting families based on their individual needs and goals. Helping them reach every milestone!
