She has helped numerous mothers with breastfeeding troubles, back to work plans, and weaning.
Danielle was born and raised in Islip, New York on Long Island and attended college at The University of Colorado at Boulder, Environmental Design Emphasis.
She has helped numerous women via phone and in person become confident breastfeeding mothers and truly cares about each mother and child she helps.
"When I had my first daughter Meadow, I thought breastfeeding was a simple choice and it would come naturally. While that is the case for some, it wasn't for me. It took the care of professionals and family support to become a confident breastfeeding mom. My journey and a passion for helping mothers along their own paths are what inspired me to share and teach mothers in the breastfeeding community."
