After graduating from UCLA, Donna returned to the San Francisco Bay Area, where she worked in the health compliance field in Silicon Valley for several years before becoming a mama to her first son in 2015.

Donna’s love for breastfeeding didn’t come easily. She faced many personal breastfeeding challenges, which led her to pursuing lactation education and support as a career. She takes pride in helping other parents reach their breastfeeding goals with a supportive, non-judgmental, fed-is-best! approach. 

In 2016, Donna completed coursework and training to become a Certified Lactation Educator Counselor (CLEC) from UC San Diego. She also has four years (and counting!) of personal breastfeeding experience between her two sons, and brings that invaluable experience and knowledge to you!
