My nursing career began in Ireland, completing my registration in General nursing in 1986. Travelling to Australia, I worked in various clinical settings in hospitals and nursing homes until 1991, when I became a Registered Midwife in St John of God hospital, and worked in Midwifery for the next 18 years.
Having my own children and experiencing some of the issues that many breastfeeding Mums face, made me keen to help others through this special, but sometimes difficult time, so I became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant ( IBCLC ) in 2009. I have worked exclusively as a Lactation consultant in Breastfeeding clinics and home visiting since then.
I am passionate about helping Mums and their partners experience a positive and rewarding breastfeeding journey.
