Liz has been involved in the world of lactation since before the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners was formed. She was a young nurse working in a huge nursery in 1983 and was the ONLY nurse who had ever breastfed a baby! At that time, the La Leche League Blue Book was available and Surgeon General C. Everett Koop had formed the State Breastfeeding Task Force groups. After teaching childbirth education for several years, Liz took the “new” UCSD CLE program under Gini Baker in 1991. She passed IBCLC boards in 1993 and has worked in many settings: hospital, clinic, pediatric office, military treatment facilities (MTF), and private practice. In addition to patient care, she has provided teaching and training, program development, parent and staff educational materials development and BFHI program development and management. Liz started Tidewater Lactation Group in 2007 to support the community and has been working on “MilkNotes” to make lactation charting easier for other LCs since 2011.
