Alisa Sacker MD, IBCLC
I first became interested in ties when my teenage daughter had her braces removed at the end of her orthodontic treatment. Her orthodontist used a laser to remove her upper lip tie as I watched. A light bulb went off in my head and I finally understood why the two of us had such issues breastfeeding. I then checked her tongue and, of course, found a significant posterior tie. That started my journey.

Jarrah Foster IBCLC
My interest in studying breastfeeding began during a women’s health course in college. I was in awe of the science, physiology, and sociology surrounding human milk production. After graduating with a degree in healthcare policy and transitioning from healthcare policy development to a healthcare technology company, I made the decision to step away from my corporate career to pursue my passion of helping mothers and families.

It was the birth of my first son that ultimately inspired me to become a Lactation Consultant. The challenges I faced during my own breastfeeding experience and the struggle to find the support that I needed inspired my life’s new mission.
