Breast Milk Pump

About Me

How I Began and Where I’m Headed

I became interested in Lactation Consulting when I was working as a resident physician at UCLA, after having my first baby in 2010.  Before that, I had no idea how much I would have to learn about breastfeeding and pumping in order to provide my baby with breastmilk!  I started talking with other residents who had recently had babies and became a sort of informal advisor and mentor for other new moms.  

I decided I wanted to get further certification and training beyond my MD degree, so I certified as a CLC in 2015 followed by my IBCLC certification in 2020. 

Now I have 3 children and I support moms in my community through not only my private lactation business, but also in my practice as an ER physician and by mentoring and advising new moms in my workplace as they go through the process of learning to breastfeed their newborns - from office staff to nurses and other doctors.  I am also a moderator for a local volunteer breastfeeding support group at Breastfeeding USA, Torrance. 

My goal is to help as many moms and babies as I can, but also help create a more supportive community of women, families and employers who respect and support breast feeding moms in every way. 

I would be honored to join you in your breastfeeding journey.
