Christa, RN, Lactation Consultant

Christa is inspired by the power of a parent's love, and this guides the care she provides to children and their families as a nurse and a lactation consultant.  She is also strongly motivated by baby snuggles and would gladly grow extra arms if she could just for this purpose!  Christa lives locally with her daughter.  If you don't run into her in the office, you might look for her on her yoga mat or at a road race.
