Like many who now call the Cape Region home, Kim fell in love with all that the area has to offer and moved here from New Jersey in 2019.  Kim is excited to join Atracare Health’s Pediatrics team as a nurse practitioner and co-founder/director of Atracare Lactation!

Kim has a wide variety of clinical experience, including several years in the Pediatric Emergency Department at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey.  She deeply relished this stimulating opportunity and found helping those in some of their most challenging moments highly rewarding.

In a pursuit for more knowledge and a quest to help those facing a different type of challenge, Kim migrated to maternal-newborn health, spending time in the OB world.  Her love for making trialing chapters feel easier for families led her to pursue her International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) certification.

To support more families with newborns, Kim, along with a dear friend and fellow passionate IBCLC, founded Maternally Yours, a lactation consulting business focused on providing parents a non-judgmental, personalized approach, allowing them to not only meet, but to thrive with their feeding goals.  Together with Atracare, this dynamic duo will succeed in helping even more families.

When not taking care of patients, you may see Kim around town enjoying time with her family, including two little girls, trying out different local cuisine, or buried in a good book.
