Hi, my name is Jen!  I am a Nurse Practitioner and Lactation Consultant and I absolutely love what I do.  I spent the first 10 years of my nursing career as a labor & delivery RN.  It was wonderful helping families bring their newborns into the world.  However, I knew my calling would eventually lead me to helping support families through their breastfeeding journey.  Breastfeeding is natural, but it certainly isn’t without its challenges.  My goal is to provide you with the education you need to make the best decisions for you and your family as well as offer you support every step of the way.

I have lived in San Diego for more years than I haven’t, and consider it home now.  I have the most amazing, supportive husband who enables me to chase my dreams.  We have two wonderful boys who keep us busy and entertained.  I am so lucky to consider supporting new families my profession and my passion.  Outside of that though, I love photography, traveling, and spending as much time with family as possible before they grow up and move out.  Oh, and we are converting a school bus into an RV (and hopefully a mobile lactation clinic?).  I look forward to helping make your experience as a new parent one that makes you feel knowledgeable, confident, and empowered.
