My aspirations are to help you reach your breastfeeding goals through private personalized care. At this time, all consultations will be done virtually using HIPAA compliant video conferencing.
I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). My passion is preventative health specifically in the field of Maternal, Infant, and Child health, which was the focus of my Masters in Public Health (MPH) from San Jose State University.
I have been working with breastfeeding mothers and their families for over 10 years. I previously worked at the Baby-Friendly Highland Hospital in Oakland and at local pediatrician's offices in Contra Costa County. Between 2015-2018 I sat on the board of the Bay Area Lactation Association and am currently a Project Manager with the California Breastfeeding Coalition.
I would love the opportunity to work with you to support your breastfeeding goals.
What does your ideal breastfeeding relationship look like? It could be two weeks, six months or the WHO (World Health Organization) recommendation of two years and beyond.
I am up for a challenge and will walk that path with you as you wish. I understand that sometimes there are breastfeeding/lactation challenges that seem insurmountable. Breastfeeding and making milk doesn’t happen easily for everyone! I am nonjudgmental and will listen even if you are feeling completely lost and exhausted. I support the breastfeeding woman as the authority on her baby and her baby’s health and best interests.
