As the oldest of four and the daughter of a lactation consultant, I grew up around breastfeeding! When I became a mom in 2008, I still needed a lot of support, especially living across the country from my mother. I found my tribe in La Leche League and became a Leader in 2010. What started as a passion became a calling, and now I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. I also teach prenatal classes at UCSF. I am married to a scientist, and we have two school-aged daughters.
