Lactation Consultant

Registered Nurse

I am a parent of three children. Following the home birth of my first in January of 2009 I suffered from postpartum depression and struggled for months with nursing challenges.  My healing journey led me to discover the importance of the nursing relationship and the role of community in parenting. I became passionate about supporting families through the most important process of their lives: birth and the journey of becoming parents.

Alongside my own nursing experiences in 2009 I began to volunteer my time supporting others to meet their nursing goals through a non-profit organisation called La Leche League. Then I nourished my love for learning by becoming a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist, and in April of 2016 I passed the exam to be an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). I fell in love with the whole art and science of the breast/chest feeding relationship! I have found my degree in Social Work compliments my LC work very well in supporting nursing families with the foundation that the parent is the expert on their own body and baby. I am passionate about giving parents the information and support they need to make the best choices for their nursing journey.
