Meet Jenn

A board-certified lactation consultant practicing in San Francisco and on the Bay Area Peninsula

Even before having my own kids, I’d always been the type of person who wants to help others find their way, offering encouragement and support, sprinkled with a little humor.  When I became a mother, I experienced both emotional and physical challenges and feelings I previously never knew existed.  I believe on some level that I came to this work as catharsis from my own experience, beginning with a desire to educate myself not only about breastfeeding, but parenting in general.  As I was growing personally, a good friend found me particularly helpful through her breastfeeding challenges and encouraged me to consider making lactation support my profession, which has now become my passion.
