She grew and led the group for three years before handing it off to new leaders. She holds a BS in Maternal Child Health, has an MPH, and is working towards completion of an MBA. She has been an IBCLC since 2010. She worked for nine years in a busy OB unit as an IBCLC, was a part of a non-profit human milk bank, and is currently working for the Chicago Department of Public Health. Margaret is passionate about maternal child health and health equity, particularly around breastfeeding. She breastfed each of her five children, two of which were NICU babies.
