I have thoroughly enjoyed a 12 year career as a licensed massage therapist, working along side physical therapists, chiropractors and acupuncturists. I have worked with clients ranging from athletes to post spinal surgery patients to prenatal mamas. I am also certified in teaching infant massage as well as a registered yoga teacher.
As an IBCLC, I enjoy utilizing all of the tools I have learned over the years to educate, empower and encourage new moms and their babies on their breastfeeding path and look forward to working with all of you.
I have worked in the field of nursing since 1999, initially as a Registered Nurse, and currently as an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner and I am studying to complete my doctorate in Advanced Nurse Practitioner in 2019. I will also complete my IBCLC certification by mid-2018. Early in my career I worked as a bedside nurse in the Neonatal ICU and in the Hospital Emergency Department.
In 2004, I obtained my Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner degree from Columbia University. Since becoming a Nurse Practitioner, I have worked with both adult and pediatric patients in general medicine as well as more specialized fields, including gastroenterology and liver transplant.
I view my role as a Nurse Practitioner to encompass not only providing high quality care to my patients but also serving as an educator, to help patients understand their illness and to partner with them in their care.
