About Tricia


 I've been a  Registered Nurse for  over 20 years, with experience in neonatal intensive care and maternal child health. I became an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 2008.  For over a decade, I have been sharing my expertise both in and out of the hospital with more families then I can count.    

 Beyond my professional work, I am married and a mother of  three  rowdy kids.  Many patients have asked me about my personal breastfeeding journey, often expecting an ideal story.  With each of my children, I experienced different struggles which I believe provides me a greater ability to understand the emotional and physical efforts a family makes when trying to give their child the best start to life.  

How I can help

Learning to breastfeed can feel both exhausting and stressful.  The early weeks of breastfeeding are especially overwhelming and critical to meeting your goals. As an experienced IBCLC, I am able address lactation challenges you are experiencing and provide evidence based solutions. Some difficulties a mother/baby may encounter are ineffective or inability to latch, painful feedings, sore nipples, low milk supply, oversupply, clogged ducts, mastitis, jaundiced, and slow infant weight gain. As an experienced IBCLC, I am able to provide in-home customized care for the unique challenges you may be experiencing as well as the guidance you need to work toward breastfeeding goals.
