I became an IBCLC in 2011. I keep current attending at least one conferences yearly, reading journals and interacting with colleagues throughout the world. I became a volunteer La Leche League Leader in 2003 and am very familiar with all the phases of the breast/chestfeeding relationship, from the early days through introducing solids to weaning.
I enjoy working with families of all types and identify as an ally for those who have not been raised in a breastfeeding culture. I feel breastfeeding is a relationship that needs to work for both parties. Whether your goal is exclusive breast/chestmilk feeding, nursing through toddlerhood or adoptive nursing, I strive to help you reach your goal.
