My Areas of Practice

My primary areas of interest in primary care include caring for young families, teenagers, and working adults.  I have a main interest in helping new families with breastfeeding concerns.  I also have an interest in helping all women have good access to long-acting contraception, such as Nexplanon implants and IUDs.  While my practice is currently closed to new adult patients, my practice always remains open to children and to family members of already established patients.  Prior to working as a nurse practitioner, I was both a NICU nurse and an emergency department nurse.  I spent over 5 years on active duty in the U.S. Navy and completed two tours in Iraq as a trauma nurse. 

As a lactation consultant, I pull from my background in NICU nursing and from my current role as a nurse practitioner to ensure that together we develop a sustainable feeding plan that is mutually agreeable between mom and baby to meet your infant's needs.   I believe that fed is best, no matter how that looks for you and your infant.  I work with infants of all ages and with moms who are returning to work to help meet your goals for feeding your baby.  Because I am a family nurse practitioner, I can also address any medical concerns that may arise during the visit for both mother and child.
