About Us

As a registered nurse (RN) since 1983, most of my career has been spent caring for premature and special-needs infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).  During this time, I understood the invaluable benefits of mother’s milk for these special babies and I thoroughly enjoyed helping mothers breastfeed. Overtime I developed a passion for breastfeeding and pursued my certification as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 2000.

I have a Masters degree in Maternal/Child nursing from University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and a post-masters certificate as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP) from Rush University, Chicago. 

While working as a nurse practitioner in a pediatric clinic, I realized that the on-going needs of breastfeeding mothers are not fully met in a busy pediatric clinic due to time constraints and lack of expertise in lactation management. After working for over 25 years in hospital settings, I decided to open up my private lactation center where I can provide undivided attention to the needs of nursing mothers and babies and provide compassionate, evidence-based, and affordable services.

I have been married since 1986 to my husband Joy, who is a great support to my new endeavor. I have two grown up daughters, Jasmin who is a Speech pathologist, married to Josh, and Jocelin who is studying in med school. Both enthusiastically encourage me and help me with the new avenues of my career.   

Highlights of my services are:

  • Direct billing to health insurance - currently accepting BCBS PPO, Aetna, AllKids, Humana PPO,  and  Medicare
  • Accept Illinois Medicaid /AllKids insurance with no additional charge/co-pay
  • Nominal charge for cash paying customers with free follow-ups

It is my hope that you find this site and our services helpful during the most joyous as well as vulnerable time of your life – when you are welcoming a new baby to your family.
