Training (the long version):

Hi! I’m Kat. I’m based out of Menlo Park CA, serving the Peninsula and greater Bay Area.

I've been an IBCLC since 2013, having practiced in CA and CT as an inpatient, outpatient, and in-home private practice RN-IBCLC.

From 2013-2016 I trained in Nurse-Midwifery in addition to GYN studies at Yale University. At the end of this program, I chose not to sit for CNM boards due to lifestyle and family needs. I graduated as a WHNP.

After graduation, I spent a brief time at Planned Parenthood, then worked for nearly 3 years in Portland Oregon caring for my panel of 600 High-Risk Breast Oncology patients.

Also in Portland Oregon, I worked per diem in private practice caring for underinsured transgender patients at a local grassroots practice, and taught nursing students on local OB-Neonatal hospital units.

Most recently, during the pandemic I trained to care for all ages and all genders of patients, earning my FNP post-Master's certification through Frontier University. This included a rotation through a renowned Pediatric Emergency Room and an FQHC clinic that saw newborn and babies.

I'm currently practicing as an NP in a full time virtual/clinic hybrid practice as a dually-certified Women's Health Nurse Practitioner and Family Nurse Practitioner in San Francisco, where I provide primary and gynecologic care to women in a medical startup environment.

It’s been a few years since I’ve provided full time lactation services. I’ve deeply missed working with families and babies during this precious (and fragile) time in their lives. My longing to put my lactation skills and  trauma-informed practice styles back to service for the greater good is the impetus for  re-starting this business that manifests before you now as Nurse Kat Pink.

I can’t wait to support you on your lactation journey.
