Lactation Coaching

As a Certified Lactation Counselor, my coaching is dedicated to helping families reach and often surpass their breastfeeding goals.  Because research shows that having ongoing and consistent breastfeeding support from at least one experienced person in your life can make all the difference in your overall success.  By focusing on your specific needs and providing ongoing breastfeeding coaching either virtually or over the phone, great things are truly possible.

Homeschool Coaching

Homeschooling is an especially wonderful educational approach when we recognize our children as partners in designing their own learning! It's the opportunity to adapt and respond thoughtfully to your child's specific needs and provide support for their aspirations one day at a time. If you are seeking an accountability partner to help you focus in on your child's strengths and find creative ways to build their weaknesses, then you have come to the right coach. With an emphasis on a gentle and kind approach, you will notice that your whole family will learn how to better blossom and grow together.

Virtual Speaking Engagements

Like most women of color in my generation, I was not officially diagnosed with ADHD until later in life.  In my case, I was in my senior year at Wellesley College, and despite being an award winning student, I was vulnerable with my Astronomy professor about how hard I was working to keep everything balanced.  It was her observations and our conversations that lead me to get formally tested for a learning disability.  I have since come to realize that speaking on the subjects of mental and cognitive health is something that may be taboo, but it is a speaking platform that I feel quite comfortable with due to my lifetime of advocating for vulnerable parents and children.


My powerful experience of learning to manage my own disability has led to a career of specializing in connecting others with similarly unique opportunities and supports. Precisly because I have accomplished many life goals despite this diagnosis, it has taken me many years to fully adapt and accept the ways this early event has impacted my life.  Being able to work for myself has been the special sauce that I never anticipated would allow me to seamlessly offer all of my skills in one place. In talking about my life as an attachment parenting focused mom of color and entrepreneur, I look forward to helping others with disabilities and unacknowledged superpowers to navigate alternative approaches to health, healing, plant based community, life-long learning, and breastfeeding support.
