MFA, IBCLC, RLC
Susan fell in love with the nursing relationship with the birth of her daughter in 1991. While working through her own breastfeeding challenges, she was helped in the early days by the first IBCLC in Utah and later by a dedicated La Leche Leader. Understanding the importance of peer support and of mentoring, she accredited as a La Leche League Leader in 1993 and board certified as an IBCLC in 1999. Her focus remains on personal longterm support for nursing and pumping parents, informed by the normal course of breastfeeding.
Susan has served on the Board of Directors for the International Affiliation of Tongue Tie Professionals (IATP) and has held evolving roles with the Utah Breastfeeding Coalition. Susan earned her MFA in Poetry from Columbia University and still carries a torch for the city of New York.
Personal passions include gardening, knitting, and the politics of language.
