  • Country: United States
Biography:

Bryna is an IBCLC (Internationally Board-certified Lactation Consultant), adult educator, birth doula, mentor IBCLC, and private practice owner. Bryna has also sought additional training and continuing education in the areas of oral function and infant feeding, Rhythmic Movement Training (RMT), primitive reflexes and brain development in infants, cultural congruency, trauma-informed care, harm-reduction approaches to clinical care, and other counseling strategies for client-facing care. A member of the 2SLGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent communities, Bryna recognizes the concepts of inclusivity and accessibility as foundational on every level of lactation from education to clinical practice and back again. Bryna also recognizes that her background as a white person in the United States places her in a position of privilege, and they are always cognizant of how that lens impacts their work both in education and clinical practice. When not working, learning, or teaching, Bryna can be found staring up at huge trees in awe or inhaling the salty air at the coast in the Pacific Northwest where they live with their children, partner, and dogs.
