Courtney found herself falling in love with all things Lactation while pregnant with her son. The amazing IBCLC's that assisted her changed her life! Seeing the passion in her eyes, Courtney w...as then encouraged by her LC's to became a WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counselor. She found joy in every moment she could learn, share and support other mothers. As a seasoned Navy Wife, Courtney was surrounded by women who were "keeping the home lights burning" and were struggling, from lack of postpartum support, while their spouses were deployed. She knew then, without a doubt, that this was her calling in life. Her families second military move found them on the West coast. There Courtney had the opportunity to continue her path to becoming an IBCLC. She preformed her clinical internship at several area hospitals, working side by side with some of San Diego's most esteemed Maternal/Infant care professionals. She's loved every opportunity being part of the intimate postpartum time. Aside from her husband and son, Courtney says that being a breastfeeding advocate and educator is one of her greatest joys. Now that she's settled into the wonderful Dallas/Ft.Worth area, she's over the moon happy to be part of the North Dallas Doula Associates team of phenomenal and empowering Doulas. A quote she tells to everyone of her families, friends & clients is plucked from a deeply moving and highly motivating lecture from her most influential instructor at UC San Diego, "You're doing the very best you can, with the information and support you have at this time." It's become a personal mantra and household "motto" in her daily life."
