CERTIFIED LACTATION COUNSELOR (CLC), RN-BSN
Hi, I'm Hollie!
As a Certified Lactation Consultant (CLC), I have completed the leading national breastfeeding certification in the United States. In addition, I am a Registered Nurse (RN) with years of experience.
I consider myself a lifelong learner, so I'm constantly working to improve my skills and expand my knowledge base. Currently, I'm working to obtain extra educational hours and patient experience that will qualify me as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
I am married with four beautiful children. My interest in breastfeeding support began while nursing my first child. I experienced a number of challenges, but was unable to find the accessible support.
During my combined forty-plus months of breastfeeding my children I have dealt with mastitis, clogged ducts, thrush, and nursing through lip and tongue ties. I also worked to provide milk for my babies while working 12 hour shifts as a nurse.
Because of these experiences, I can offer you breastfeeding advice that is both clinical and practical. My goal is to support and sustain mothers so they can meet their breastfeeding goals.
So, lets work together to keep you and your little one healthy and happy!
