Like many new moms, I knew very little about breastfeeding before having a child of my own. I faced early feeding challenges, and felt empowered by the lactation consultants who educated and guided me along my breastfeeding journey. As soon as my baby and I found our breastfeeding rhythm I knew I wanted to pay forward the knowledge and support I had received.
I graduated from UC San Diego’s Lactation Consult Program, earning my clinical hours at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, and am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). After several years in San Francisco, my family relocated to the Boston area, where I grew up.
I am now the proud mom to two wonderful children. With one child, I surpassed the original breastfeeding ideals I had envisioned for my family pre-delivery. With the other child I redefined our feeding plan several times as we faced unanticipated struggles. While the feeding experiences differed greatly, they were both filled with love, nourishment, nurturing, empowerment, and lots and lots of snuggles.
I look forward to working with you to reach your breastfeeding goals, with compassion and evidence-based information catered to your individual needs. We will continue reevaluating our plan while we unfold what best suits you and your family, and how that may evolve over time. It is an honor to be a part of your story. We are in this together!
