About me

I am a Board Certified Lactation Consultant and Registered Nurse. I worked as a Level III NICU RN before becoming a Lactation Consultant. In February of 2020, I started Milk'd Up, which is a family-centered lactation practice that strives to empower parents to feel confident feeding their babies. We are an inclusive practice that supports ALL infant feeding goals. When I am not helping parents, I like to spend time reading, running, skiing, or doing yoga.
