I became a mother in 2009, and it transformed my perspective of the world, and myself. I was compelled to help other parents right from the start, first through online and in-person parent support groups, then through informal breastfeeding support. I became a La Leche League Leader in 2011, and continued learning and providing support while slowly working toward becoming an IBCLC, all while juggling the usual trials of parenthood with one child, then another, and another. Since then, I have supported several hundred families and have thousands of contact hours working directly as a lactation counselor and consultant.
I am a retired La Leche League Leader, retired Babywearing Educator, and Board Member with the North Florida Birth Alliance. I am also an avid herbalist and gardener, and love to spend time with my plants. When I’m not supporting families, I’m homeschooling my own kids, or taking them on outdoor adventures throughout our beautiful state. We love surfing, kayaking, fishing, snorkeling, just about everything involving the water.
As a mother to three beautiful, wild children, I intimately understand the emotional and physical struggles of raising young children and babies, and I am more than happy to share my knowledge and experience to help you meet your personal infant feeding and parenting goals.
