Tiffany began her breastfeeding journey 18 years ago when she nursed her first baby. After successfully breastfeeding two children, she faced more complicated struggles with her third nursling. Determined to breastfeed again, she began learning all she could about how to solve her breastfeeding concerns. This led her to a breastfeeding peer counselor role with her local health department’s WIC & Nutrition Program. As a breastfeeding peer counselor she gained training in lactation and in nutrition. She encouraged moms, taught the basics of breastfeeding, and guided clients in overcoming their own hurdles. She met many mothers that felt the same isolation in their breastfeeding journeys and found that living in a rural community often made it difficult to access lactation support. Helping to fill those gaps and supporting lactation in her community became a passion for Tiffany. To better help the mothers that she serves she pursued a higher education in lactation as a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) and is now an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC).
Tiffany has spent thousands of hours helping WIC breastfeeding mothers conquer diverse and complex lactation issues. She also has first hand experience navigating tongue tie, weight-gain concerns, hypotonia, high-palate, reflux, bottle refusal, and many other breastfeeding obstacles with her own four children. She is an expert in maternal and infant nutrition, infant feeding, baby-led weaning, pumping (including flange sizing and/or exclusive pumping), tongue-tie, bottle introduction or refusal, secure attachment, breastfeeding with sensory issues or neurodivergence; and breastfeeding with PCOS, diabetes, and other potential supply affecting diseases.
Tiffany’s grassroot beginnings have built for her a deep sense of commitment to community. She is the leader and founder of the Tri-County Breastfeeding Support Group in North FL, sits as the Chair of the Capital Area Breastfeeding Coalition, and participates in outreach activities in her North Florida neighborhood regularly. She hopes to continue to normalize and destigmatize breastfeeding and build a circle of support with local healthcare providers that will advocate for breastfeeding. When you work with Tiffany, you are not just working with a lactation consultant – you are working with a member of your own community who cares deeply about your well-being and the well-being of your baby.
