My Story

After earning my bachelor's degree in dietetics I earned 1 of only 5 pediatric focused dietetic internships in the country. That year long program took me to St. Louis, where I learned the ins and outs of working at children's hospitals, in school systems, and WIC offices.

Luckily, a local WIC office was hiring when I returned to Bloomington to start my professional career. That job, which I still hold, led me towards a career in lactation over 10 years ago!


I've been working with breast/chest feeding parents since 2012, not to mention nursing my own two children to 19 months and 36 months. I've personally experienced tongue tie, painful latch, clogged ducts, and unilateral nursing. I've pumped, I've dumped, I've cried over spilled milk. I've helped others through open sores, supply imbalance, mastitis, relactating, and most other storms a chest/breastfeeding relationship can throw at you. I've loved every second I've spent educating others on lactation and I'm ready to help you, too. 

I believe in radical self-love, and radical love of others. I am an inclusive provider that will come to you with knowledge and support free of shame or judgement over any choices you make for your family.
