Speech Pathologist + Lactation Counselor + Twin Mom
The St. Johns Feeding Difference: Experience and Expertise.
I have 12+ years of experience and extensive training with breastfeeding, bottle feeding, tongue and lip ties, and starting solids. I am committed to life-long learning and have received the ASHA ACE award for my dedication to continuing education.
In addition to my professional experience, I am also a parent to toddler twins that have experienced a NICU stay, and difficulties with breastfeeding, bottle feeding, reflux, and tongue/lip ties. I know the challenges families face and my experience has sparked a passion to want to help as many babies and families as possible.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Miami University and a Master’s Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Florida State University. I am also a Certified Lactation Counselor. My educational background and certifications give me a unique and comprehensive understanding of infant feeding.
