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 hands on 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. Currently, I have over 12 years of direct patient care experience from working in private practice, outpatient clinics, a hospital and a dental office, with a focus on oral ties, also known as Tight Oral Tethers (TOTS). I am a Certified Breastfeeding Educator (CBE) and an International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I have served on the board of the Dallas Lactation Consultant Alliance and I am currently the Chair and interim Executive Director for the Texas Breastfeeding Coalition.
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 current situation. 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!
