I am a mom of a 4 ½ year old energetic boy named Asher and a 1 ½ year old sassy girl named Mila.I breastfed Asher for 4 years and pumped exclusively for Mila for 15 months.I recently had to stop pumping but she is currently still breastfed with milk from an amazing donor.I am an Army wife and recently retired from the Army with 20 years of service and currently work as an Outreach Specialist with the New Mexico Breastfeeding Task force.I am also a Doula and a Lactation Educator and teach breastfeeding and baby basics classes at a local hospital.I have a Masters in Community Health Education and taught for 8 years at the University of New Mexico, I love teaching and hope to one day soon obtain my Doctorate in Public Health.I have always been interested in health and wellness but after having my son I began my journey into Maternal and Child health with an emphasis on lactation. I have also worked as a bedside Breastfeeding Peer Counselor with WIC helping new moms immediately after having their babies. I enjoy working with families and helping them meet their breastfeeding goals.

Fun Fact:

I was bored the 9 months my husband deployed so I ran 9 half marathons and countless 5 and 10ks.

Favorite TV Show:

Anything True Crime on Investigation ID or Fixer Upper on HGTV
