Katie has built a reputation by consulting with families and working hard to solve the challenge that arise with the complexity of infant feeding, sleep concerns and early parenting. She holds a master's degree in Maternal and Child Nutrition from the University of California, Davis as well as an international certification in lactation consulting (IBCLC). Her extensive background in the fields of child development and women's health has allowed her to make a career of her passion for guiding parents to make healthy decisions for themselves and their children.
She and her husband are raising their son Joaquin in the Sierra Nevada foothills. No matter how much experience she brings to the table, her son reminds her everyday to surrender, stay open-minded and to always ask the question 'why not?'
