I am an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and Registered Nurse.


I graduated from the University of British Columbia, Okanagan Campus in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I completed the Perinatal Nursing Specialty with Neonatal focus Certification from British Columbia Institute of Technology in 2007 and became an IBCLC in 2011.


Since graduating, I have worked as a Maternity Nurse at Vernon Jubilee Hospital and Whitehorse General Hospital as well as a Public Health Nurse at Whitehorse Health Centre.


I grew up in Vernon and moved back a month before having my first child in 2014. My daughter is now 4 years old and my son is almost 2 years old. I love working with mothers and their families and am passionate about breastfeeding and empowering women to trust their intuition.
