Melissa is a Registered Nurse, International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, and Certified Childbirth Educator. She completed the UCSD Extension Lactation Consultant program. She also teaches prenatal classes for Kaiser.
When she had her first baby, she did all of the research about childbirth. She took classes, read books and felt completely prepared. She thought breastfeeding would be the easy part, but instead she met many challenges along the way. It was those challenges that inspired Melissa to step away from nursing and dedicate her career to helping moms enjoy breastfeeding success.
"My goal is to empower families to meet their breastfeeding goals. It may not always be easy, but I will be here to support you along your journey."
