Assisting mothers in their breastfeeding journey is extremely meaningful and rewarding work. I hope to reach out and help as many new families as I can to make their transition to parenthood a little smoother, and give their babies the best start possible.
Debra really helped me when no one else could figure out my issues. Without Debra’s help, I would’ve given up months too early. We are forever grateful! ~S. H.
I also work as an RN/IBCLC at a local community hospital, helping mothers of full-term babies immediately post-partum & establishing breastfeeding for mothers with babies in the neonatal ICU

My background has always been in the health sciences. I obtained my Bachelor of Science Degree in Nutrition from Cornell University in 1985 and became a Registered Nurse in 1988. Like many lactation consultants, I found breastfeeding my own two sons to be very gratifying yet challenging. For this reason I enrolled in the UCSD Lactation Consultant program and became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.
