I haven’t quite started with Connie yet but plan to after my maternity leave! I will be working as a birth assistant and IBCLC.
I have worked as a labor and delivery nurse in the hospital setting but love the patient-centered caring atmosphere of a home birth and birthing center.
I started as a new grad in labor and delivery in 2006 at a small inner city hospital in Chicago, Illinois where I worked for four years before moving back to Arizona. I then started at Banner Estrella as an antepartum and postpartum nurse in 2010. In 2016 I became a CLC and obtained my IBCLC in 2017. I then transferred to Banner Thunderbird to work on their lactation team.
I grew up in Phoenix, and I went to college in Chicago living there 11 years before moving back to Arizona. My husband and I have been together for 18 years and married for 6. God has blessed us with 4 beautiful children Olivia (5), Emma (3), Ava (1) and we just welcomed our new baby Louis. We also have a dog-named Sadie. I love spending quality time with my family and traveling as often as possible!
