After my oldest child was born, we struggled with breastfeeding. I had not prepared, but assumed I’d be okay since my mom had been successful. That was a terrible assumption. My journey nursing my son led to a passion to educate and help other families in their own infant feeding journey.
With over 4 years of personal breastfeeding experience, ultimately leading me to become an IBCLC, I know the real life ins and outs of feeding a baby. From the first days, to being a working, pumping mom, to weaning and everything in between, I’m passionate about it because I’ve lived it. My passion for lactation led me to opening Nurture Lactation in 2019, initially focusing on education, then individual consults.
In addition to being an IBCLC, I hold a Bachelor’s in Organizational Communications and Spanish from William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri. Yes, that means I speak Spanish as well! I continue to build my lactation education through various trainings and continuing education so that I may serve families with the most updated evidence-based research. I share knowledge and information so that you can make the best informed decision for your family’s needs.
