About me as a breastfeeding supporter:
I breast fed my three children and became an even greater supporter when I started teaching breastfeeding in my Lamaze classes, the more I taught, the more strongly I wanted to help mothers with their breastfeeding goals. Over the years, I saw, and still see pregnant women and nursing mothers with breastfeeding questions and concerns. I would be very happy to help you achieve your breastfeeding goals.

Taught breastfeeding in Lamaze classes for over 25 years.
Trained and certified by UCLA as a Certified Lactation Educator (CLE) 1997.
Trained by University of California at San Diego (UCSD) in lactation 2004-2005.
