I have been a Registered Nurse for over 20 years. I've been a teen mom, NICU mom, single mom, working mom, and a married mom. My experience as a mother is helpful as I provide you with support. I have been an IBCLC for 6 years helping hundreds of families meet their breastfeeding goals. In 2018 I was awarded the March of Dimes Nurse of the Year Award for my work with Amerigroup leading their lactation program. I am dedicated to supporting all women but have a special interest in the underserved community. I recently founded a non profit Ready Set Push with the goal of increasing access to quality childbirth education in the community.
Associate of Science in Nursing (2002)
Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (2018)
I offer full service clinical lactation care. I also provide Lamaze childbirth classes. If you need a support group please visit the website to get access virtually.
Kiana was such a godsend to us when we were trying to determine if we should address our baby's tongue and lip tie. She did a thorough evaluation and gave us great referrals for therapists who helped us gain even more insight. I am so happy to be part of her Thrive Lactation Collective and thankful for her work and beautiful spirit!
