NYLCA Member IBCLCs Serving Staten Island
My own breastfeeding struggles with my three children made me pursue this field. I have a degree in Accounting , and worked as an Auditor for NYC Comptroller’s Office for 8 years. It took persuasion of a loving friend and 4 years of study and training to change my career.
It is my passion to assist parents on their breastfeeding journey
and I take great care to accomplish this in a nurturing, compassionate manner. Wanting to breastfeed your baby is natural, but doing it, as I learned myself, doesn’t always come easy. With my extensive training and experience helping families to overcome breastfeeding challenges, I offer lactation education, assistance and support.
My practical, evidence-based approach empowers parents to make informed decisions and achieve their breastfeeding goals. For every parent and baby pair I work with, my focus is on creating an individualized plan
that helps make breastfeeding work for them, even after a rocky start.
