August 29th, 2019

My work in lactation has never been a job. It is my passion, something that powers my engine and makes my heart beat. I have an internal drive to help women find the joy I found, find the power in themselves, and know the accomplishment that can come from learning how to trust ourselves, our bodies and our babies. 

Many of you may know me as your La Leche League Leader, or from my 10 years of working as a Lactation Consultant in two of the top teaching hospitals in Kansas City. Starting in 2009 at The University of Kansas Hospital and my final 8 years being at St Luke’s Hospital on The Plaza. I gained an incredible amount of knowledge, skills and experience working with the tiniest of babies, all the way to the biggest of babies, toddlers and children. Many of these families I have been honored to see grow from 1 child to many children. 

I am beyond excited to start this new chapter! I am also humbled by the greatness, brains and just darn phenomenal, brilliant colleagues that have surrounded me the last 10 years. These people; nurses, physicians, social workers, specialists, support staff, leaders, and the very families themselves, they have shaped me. They have shared their wisdom, shared their stories, and helped to nurture me into who I am today. For that, I am so thankful to them. Many of these people have now become family and my dear friends!

So here I go! Honored to be doing the work I do, and ready to be 100% devoted to families that need help outside of the hospital setting! I have heard you, and your call, and I’m answering, and you’ll see me on your doorstep. 

Onward and upward with my private practice; Done Naturally Lactation Services!

And don’t forget, you can always find me on my YouTube channel Done Naturally that is full of information for new, experienced and expecting moms.
