A La Leche League leader since 1975, she formed the first LLL group for mothers of multiples after the birth of her twin sons and still leads this group. The experiences of the group’s mothers provided the basis for her book Mothering Multiples: Breastfeeding and Caring for Twins or More. Her numerous articles and chapters about breastfeeding multiples have been published in professional and lay publications. A former ILCA president (1994-96), she was designated Fellow of the International Lactation Consultant Association (FILCA) in 2008.
