"I began Blessed Beginnings in 2009 to help meet the needs of expectant and new parents in the Middle Tennessee area. As a registered nurse for twenty  years, I have a background in labor & delivery, mother/baby postpartum care, lactation and childbirth education. I love working with families in the comfort of their own homes during a season of life that is full of unexpected challenges and sweet blessings. It is a privilege to be a small part of a mom and baby's story, and my desire is that every family would have a Blessed Beginning!"

“Acting as both a pediatric nurse and mother of two for the past 13 years, I have developed a strong passion for the mother-baby bond and every challenge and joy associated with it. As a postpartum doula, my goal is to stand with you in any challenge you face and help bring you through to the other side successfully with encouragement and support. Together we will explore all resources to relieve household stress and make sure you have a blessed beginning with your baby.”

“As an IBCLC, my primary desire is to meet you where you are in your breastfeeding journey and help you achieve your breastfeeding goals. The experiences I had nursing my three children were both wonderful and challenging. Through the highs and lows, I developed a love for the breastfeeding relationship between a mom and her baby and an awareness of how important support is in the success of that relationship. I’ve been where you are and want to provide you with guidance and encouragement in this special season of your life.”

“One of the things I love most about working with moms and their babies is sharing in those special moments, such as the first latch or that look of confidence a mom gets when she realizes she can provide and nourish this special blessing she was given. These moments are the ones I treasure from my own motherhood and breastfeeding journey and I would love to work with you to ensure these moments are ones you will treasure as well. I’ve worked as a IBCLC in a hospital setting since 2019, and I am also excited to be in private practice and be able to assist mothers in the comfort of their own home. I feel moms and babies are most comfortable and relaxed in their home environment and this helps provide for a positive and successful experience. I look forward to meeting you and helping to make your breastfeeding journey a blessed one.”
