I grew up in the Green Mountains of northern Vermont, the daughter of a lactation consultant and a chef.  Perhaps unsurprisingly, I love working with babies and their families, and I love food!

I moved to the Valley in 1995 to attend Mount Holyoke College, where I studied American History and Italian.  After graduating, I moved back to Vermont to pursue additional education in Pre-Med/Complementary & Alternative Therapies at the University of Vermont.  During my years at UVM, I began to recognize the importance of holistic healthcare and refined my focus to Women’s Health.  Love brought me back to the Valley and shortly after moving back, I began a Master’s program in Health & Wellness with a focus in Human Lactation.  In 2009, I became certified as a lactation consultant.  I welcomed my first child that same year.
 

I live in Amherst with my husband, Andy, our children, Callum and Drea, and our dog, Kona.  We like living in a vibrantly diverse college community, enjoy biking on the Rail Trail, hiking at the local state parks, and love spending time by the ocean.

In the years I’ve worked as a lactation consultant, I’ve learned so much from babies and families.  I am honored to support them and humbled by the sentience and presence of even the tiniest newborn.  I continue to practice under the philosophy that healthcare is most optimally provided when approached holistically.  This is one of the reasons I like working with babies and their families---in the early days and weeks, and especially with breastfeeding; it is so important to consider the connection between mother and baby, between gestation and the world outside the womb, and between the physical and the emotional.

I am honored to work with the skilled providers and staff at Northampton Area Pediatrics and to have the opportunity to complement the amazing care they provide for families.
