I always knew I wanted to work with mothers, babies, and families to assist and empower them. I first became a lactation consultant in 1997, while I was in school at Columbia University, attaining my Masters in Nursing as a Certified Nurse Midwife and Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. Before that, I graduated with my Bachelors degree in nursing from the University of Vermont in 1992 and then worked for several years in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. Knowing that I wanted to be around birth, began working at the Long Island Birth Center and Glen Cove Hospital. I found that I had a special love for helping Moms and babes with breastfeeding. I now have two children of my own who have both been happily breastfed.
