“I completed my M.A. in Health and Wellness from Union Institute and University and became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 2011 and recertified in 2016. I’ve been assisting women with breastfeeding since 2008. I’ve lived in Key Largo since 2013, with my husband and three beautiful children. After the birth of my first child, I needed the guidance of a lactation consultant to resolve some issues and went on to breastfeed for 19 months. Friends and family began to seek my advice on certain breastfeeding issues and I realized I found my passion; helping other mothers and babies with breastfeeding. From helping friends and family, to my work at WIC, I enjoy assisting mothers to meet their breastfeeding goals, whatever that may be.”
