BSN, RN, IBCLC
I am a Registered Nurse and Board Certified Lactation Consultant with nearly 28 years of experience in the field of maternal child health. I have worked as a labor and delivery nurse, post partum nurse and patient educator in the hospital setting and as the coordinator of newborn services and lactation in a pediatric office. Most recently I worked at Breastfeeding Resources in Stratford, CT with Christina Smillie, MD. I have also taught thousands of parents and provided staff training and development for nurses, doctors and nutritionists. I have authored hundreds of articles and consulted for websites and worked as a content developer and online expert.
I know of course, that moms have great instincts when it comes to feeding their babies, but it can get buried under too much information!
Through my many years of teaching breastfeeding, I have developed great strategies and techniques to make learning fun and easy to understand. I love having light bulb and ah-ha moments with the families I support.
Let me assist you in achieving your breastfeeding goals.

Welcome to Milk Street!
Welcome to our beautiful newly decorated storefront space! I had a vision of a place where moms feel seen, heard, supported and pampered. My goal is to have you exhale when you walk through the front door at MSLSC! Relax in the beautiful lobby, have a cup of tea, let the peaceful music help you feel nurtured and cared for. My goal is that you will walk out feeling more confident.
