Congratulations on your new  little one! Breastfeeding is a great way to give your little one the very best in nutrition. Breastfeeding is a natural process but it is also a learning experience for both mom and baby. Studies have shown that mothers are more successful with breastfeeding if they have professional support from an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). IBCLCs go through a rigorous educational program including specialized training in complex breastfeeding issues and we are required to pass a comprehensive exam before being granted certification. In addition to my training and certification, I also use the latest research to complement my practice.

I graduated from Texas State University with a degree in Family and Consumer Science and a minor in Business Administration. I've worked with numerous mom & baby dyads at WIC as a Breastfeeding Peer Counselor from 2010 to 2015. In 2013, I tested for my LC certification and then sharpened my skills as a Lead Breastfeeding Peer Counselor and IBCLC at Mom's Place, the WIC Breastfeeding Clinic.  I am also a Certified Breastfeeding Educator (CBE) and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). After giving birth and breastfeeding two boys, I have come to realize that my heart and passion lies in breastfeeding support services. I believe that every family deserves the right to give their baby the best start in life. My goal is to help you reach your goals. Each family is different and I pride myself on being able to tailor my services to what works best for your life. I offer private prenatal breastfeeding classes as well as in-home breastfeeding consultations and postpartum return to work classes. I look forward to working with you and your family!
