As a researcher, registered nurse, and lactation consultant, I am extremely passionate about improving breastfeeding rates in the African American community. My research is centered on the intersection of race, gender, family dynamics, life course, and breastfeeding. The long-term goal of my program of research is to reduce infant feeding disparities in the African American community and develop culturally-informed breastfeeding interventions to improve infant feeding education and breastfeeding initiation and duration. My career goals include cultivating a program of research aimed at improving the health and well-being of African American women and their families and to become a leading NIH-funded lactation researcher and maternal and child health advocate.
