Michelle is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant and clinical health educator with over 17 years experience. She likes to say that she "has been in the food business her whole life!" After leaving her bakery in 2000, she stumbled upon a part time job that showed her the path to her true passion: helping families feed and care for their children! She is a lactation consultant and clinical health educator in the pediatrics department at Kaiser Permanente in San Francisco. She also teaches breastfeeding and newborn care at Blossom Birth, El Camino Hospital and Stanford Children's Hospital.
She is the proud mom of two successful young adults, one dog, three cats and happy spouse to her wonderful and supportive husband!
Michelle's passion is helping partners become parents and helping moms and babies find their own breastfeeding relationship. She is available for home lactation visits both on the Peninsula and the San Mateo Coastside.
