Danice the owner and Lactation Consultant of Little Milky Way. She is a mother of 2 from Northern Jersey with a passion of supporting, educating and bringing communities of breastfeeding families together. Her professional career includes earning a degree in Health Science from Long Island University and as an educator teaching various science and math courses to pharmacy and medical assistant students. Her aspirations to becoming a full-time supporter for breastfeeding families, an IBCLC, did not come until she grew her own family, experiencing her own trial and tribulations breastfeeding her two children and through starting her own breastfeeding support group to help her get through those bumpy roads. She realized her love for educating and now her love for supporting families should become one.
