I am a Registered Nurse; I graduated from Mount St. Mary’s Accelerated Bachelors of Science in Nursing program in 2012. After graduation I first worked in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). I gained skills and experience in the most critical of situations, such as performing CPR during a Code Blue.
My father had previously been diagnosed with cancer and I felt passionate about spending some time working in oncology. After working the in ICU, I began working on early and late phase clinical trials in the area of oncology. I became an Oncology Certified Nurse (OCN) through the Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation after studying their curriculum and passing the exam. Being a part of cutting-edge oncology treatments I witnessed some patients with Stage IV cancer receive trial treatments and go into complete remission!
After giving birth to my first son I decided that I wanted to take my nursing career in a different direction. The nurses played a big role in my recovery after an emergency c-section and taught me how to breastfeed which motivated me to work with new mamas and babies. I was hired at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in 2015 and began working on the Mother/Baby (Postpartum) Unit. Working at Cedars-Sinai provided me with hands-on experience and great knowledge about newborn assessment, newborn care, breastfeeding/lactation and postpartum care for mothers who have delivered both vaginally and by cesarean section.
After having my second baby I decided that I wanted to take my life in a different path that would allow me to spend more time with my own children but still work with mothers and newborn babies. I’m excited to start a new journey with South Bay Baby Care as my new business and I hope to share my knowledge and expertise with expectant and new parents in the areas of newborn care, breastfeeding & lactation, sleep routines, post-partum care, and CPR + First Aid.
Thank you for considering me to help you with your journey as a parent! I look forward to making this transition a bit easier for you and your baby.
