I was born and raised in South Africa. It was there that I obtained my degree in Dietetics and honed my skills providing breastfeeding education to rural communities. I met my husband during my graduate year. I moved to Portland OR with him in 2004 and started working with WIC that same year. In january of this year we moved down to Ashland where I am now starting my own Private Practice after almost 14 years on the public health sector.
