About Nova 

Prior to her Lactation Counselor journey, Nova lived her lifelong dream of dancing on Broadway, performing and teaching dance both nationally and internationally for over 20 years.


Through her years of experience living with chronic pain after an injury ended her dance career, the empowerment, presence, and vitality of the mind-body-breath connection and mindfulness fueled her healing through several years of surgeries and procedures.  She possess a deep passion to share this holistic path to ease with others through her Lactation Counseling Sessions and Yoga classes. 

In lactation counseling sessions, she provides a compassionate, gentle, and safe space for breast/chestfeeding families, empowering them to discover what feels best when it comes to feeding their baby. She helps with common challenges that can arise for the breast/chestfeeding dyad including Engorgement, Plugged Ducts, Low Milk Supply, Bottle Preference, Fussiness at the breast/chest, Oversupply, Mastitis, Nipple Pain, and Latch/Positioning.
