I am a lactation consultant in Rochester, New York. I became interested in the field of lactation consulting after breastfeeding my own children. After spending thousands of hours working with new mothers and babies, I was able to sit for the board exam, which qualified me as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, or IBCLC. In 2010, I completed my Advanced Lactation certification and BS in Maternal Child Health/Lactation. In the fall of 2013, I completed my MA in Health and Wellness/Lactation. I am dedicated to serving mothers and babies, and have the unique ability to identify with the needs and concerns of new mothers. I also have experience working with older babies and mothers returning to work and wishing to continue their breastfeeding relationship.
I am a Certified Child Birth Educator. As a health educator, I enjoy teaching prenatal breastfeeding class. I believe it is important to have the opportunity to ask questions and learn about breastfeeding before the baby is born. As part of my commitment to education, I also have the benefit of presenting for medical personnel, lactation and birth specialists and parents either at conferences or workshops. I have worked extensively with women who have survived trauma, babies struggling with tongue tie, birth trauma, milk supply issues, attachment, identifying latch problems, returning to work and breastfeeding multiples.
I have 3 biological children, including twins, and 3 step children. I believe that women deserve the opportunity to have the breastfeeding relationship that they desire, free from distress, and I am honored to be part of this magical experience.
