I am a mother of 3, Family Medicine physician, and owner of a direct care practice – Blossoming Mamas: 4th Trimester Care.
I strive to provide evidence based, patient-centered care to new parents and families through Blossoming Mamas. In addition to being a board certified Family Medicine physician, I am a certified lactation counselor and have additional clinical experience with infertility, women’s health, hormone imbalance, lactation counseling, and breastfeeding medicine.
I also work with several organizations to promote systemic change and a cultural shift in how we treat new parents and families. I am on the inaugural board and President of the Center for 4th Trimester Care, a Medical Content Expert and writer for the Institute for the Advancement of Breastfeeding & Lactation Education, and was previously a moderator for Dr. MILK – a breastfeeding support group for physicians.
Outside of work, I love traveling with my family, reading a good book with a nice cup of tea, and writing.
