About Me

Pre-Lactation

2014 I graduated from law school and worked odd jobs trying to figure out exactly what it was that I wanted to do with my degree. Nothing ever felt right until I landed a job working for the NYC DOE in their administrative offices. I had a great job, benefits, and the responsibility to oversee things I knew I was capable of managing. I thought this was it! I found a career I could settle into.


Then in April 2017 a beautiful soul was brought into the world and changed my life for the better. My son thrusted me into the world of motherhood, with all its ups and downs, and I embraced every part of it. It was during my maternity leave that I realized I did not want to leave him and go work for anyone else. So my husband and I packed up and moved out of NYC to East Aurora.

Birth of Second Nature Lactation Services

After being a stay at home mom for over a year I knew I wanted to eventually work for myself but I did not want to go back into law. I wanted a career that wouldn't take away from my job as a mother but I wanted something that would fulfill me just as much. 


I loved every minute of breastfeeding my son. The bond that occurs during such an intimate time is undescribeable. I wanted to help every mother or mom to be to have that same experience. That's when Second Nature Lactation services was "born."


In July 2018 I attended a training held by the Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice (ALPP) and became a Certified Lactation Counselor. Now I'm on a mission to help mothers out there with their breastfeeding goals.
