Caring and compassionate lactation consultant
Hello Mamas! I am Ashley and I am so glad that you have found my lactation consulting site. I am a caring and compassionate lactation consultant that was inspired to enter lactation consulting after my first failed attempt to breastfeed my oldest daughter. After diving into breastfeeding education, I successfully breastfed my youngest son for sixteen months with the help of an amazing lactation consultant (see, even lactation consultants need lactation consultants).
In 2020, I completed a Doctorate of Public Health degree where my research focused on breastfeeding success. For the past six years, I have been working in higher education, while volunteering for a breastfeeding organization. In September of 2020, I sat for and passed the IBCLC exam. I am also a CAPPA certified lactation educator, where I have started to hold prenatal breastfeeding education classes.
I am originally from Northeastern Pennsylvania and currently reside in Brooklyn, New York with my husband and two children. Being in NYC, I do have some favorite places including the MET and the American Museum of Natural History (because it’s my daughter’s favorite) and any Broadway Theater (Wicked being my favorite).
