My name is Jennifer Horne and I’m so happy you have found me. I’m a International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) with over 3 years helping hundreds of families. It is my mission to create a caring, open learning environment where families can ask questions without judgement and prepare for their own journey with evidence based information. I am absolutely passionate about breastfeeding and can’t wait to help yours!
I graduated from the College of the Holy Cross with a B.A. in Psychology/Pre-medicine. I also have an M.B.A. from Babson College in Massachusetts. I have have held various clinical research and corporate positions in the pharmaceutical and medical device industry. I studied as a Lactation Consultant at UC San Diego and completed my training in Southern California at two local hospitals and private practices. Before becoming an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, I worked at Kaiser Permanente teaching newborn care and breastfeeding classes. I also ran a private lactation consulting business in California helping many moms in the comfort of their own homes.
I am a proud mom of three beautiful children, ages 9, 8, and 6. I grew up in RI but lived in Massachusetts most of my adult life. My family and I spent some time in California but have recently relocated back to RI and reside in Barrington. In my free time I enjoy gardening and baking.
I breastfed all of my babies and each experience was very different. I encountered many challenges, including going back to work, but I also understand the commitment and the true joy of breastfeeding. My mission is to create a caring and compassionate learning environment where families can ask questions and empower themselves to create a strong foundation to breastfeed before their baby takes his or her first latch.
