Jesica started her career as an RN in a cardiac intensive care unit. After experiencing the care of wonderful nurses and lactation consultants with the birth of her first son, she transitioned her career to work in a mother baby unit. During her time as a mother and baby nurse, Jesica developed a strong desire to support other mothers. She knew the challenges of breastfeeding firsthand, and was inspired by the help and support of the lactation consults who assisted her after the birth of her second son to continue her education. She became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 2008. Since that time Jesica has worked as a Lactation Consultant to assist new mothers and infants, mothers with low milk supply, mothers with multiples, mothers with history of breast surgery, preterm infants, infants experiencing breast refusal and infants that are slow to gain weight. Her goal is to help all mothers have a plan to meet their individual breastfeeding goals.
When Jesica isn’t assisting other mothers, she enjoys spending time her own two boys and their dogs. They enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, bike riding, gardening and the beach.
