About Catrina

While I'm not working as an educator or lactation counselor, I focus on practicing peaceful parenting alongside my husband on Long Island, New York. Every day we are working to build the best versions of ourselves in order to raise happy and healthy human beings. 

Taking time off from my full time job as a world language teacher allows me to be home with my children while I work part time. Blogging enables me to share my story in addition to providing valuable information and encouragement to others. 

Mothering through breastfeeding has been such an incredibly rewarding and life-changing experience for my family. My personal transition into motherhood has inspired me to pursue certification as a lactation counselor and work towards my International Board Certification (IBCLC) in order to expand my knowledge and to help support families near and far.
