Feeding is one of the most important aspects in caring for your baby. Each family has a unique set of needs for feeding, and those options can be difficult to navigate alone. I am here to help. Whether it is a breast pump, a bottle or the use of other feeding devices, I am here to guide you on your feeding journey. Through a consultation, I will help you define your feeding goals and how to achieve them, no matter what they may be!
I am your support throughout your whole journey. From the immediate postpartum period to introducing solids or weaning, I am here. I can provide virtual feeding or lactation support wherever you are in the world. For those in Oklahoma City and the surrounding areas, I can provide in-person support at your hospital of choice, in your home or virtually.
Often, feeding difficulties don't arise until after hospital discharge or late at night. When your infant is refusing to be fed at 11p.m., I am reachable by call or text to answer questions or talk you through the situation. I truly become your Pocket IBCLC!
I currently accept most PPO plans with Blue Cross Blue Shield, Anthem, UnitedHealthcare, and Cigna insurance plans through The Lactation Network. I also am an In-Network Provider for Tricare East and Aetna.
Define your feeding goals and plan on how to meet them!
With so many choices on the market, it can become overwhelming. Let me help!
Chest, breast, bottle, or tube, I am here to support you!

I am a mom to three biological daughters who have given me vast personal feeding experience, from breastfeeding to G-tube. With these experiences, I felt first-hand the lack of knowledge and support that is
available for infant feeding as a whole and the mental struggle that results from a difficult feeding journey. My oldest was formula fed from 6 days old after being diagnosed with a metabolic condition that doesn't allow her to have breast milk. She then received her first NG tube at 3 months old and had her G-tube placed at 6 months old. Feeding was a struggle for years, including feeding solids that required feeding therapy. With my second daughter, I was able to exclusively breastfeed for 6 months (breast and bottle) before introducing solids via Baby Led Weaning. My third daughter was born prematurely and diagnosed with the same genetic condition as my first, but we were able to mix half breast milk and half specialty formula to be fed via G-tube. Due to mixing her feedings, I exclusively pumped for 10 months.
I also am a foster mom to lots of little loves. There is always enough love to go around in our home.
My husband, Michael, and I have been married since September 2012. He has been my best friend since preschool and I am so honored to get to spend my life with him!
I became a Registered Nurse in February of 2013. In my years of practice, I have had the pleasure of working PostPartum, NICU, Pre-Op/PACU, and Pediatrics. My passion has been in working in Pediatric Emergency medicine, where I have been able to develop skills and lifelong knowledge in many areas.
My passion for lactation support started while working in the NICU and has only grown and evolved. In my personal and professional experiences, I have been able to see all sides of the feeding journey and the lack of support that comes in choosing the way you feed your infant. My goal is to change the narrative. I will love on, build up and support you no matter how your feeding journey begins, or the path it takes.
