What do you find most exciting about working on the WIC team at Open Door?
The most exciting thing about working in WIC is to be able to share my passion for breastfeeding with all the participants. I love to help moms give the best gift to their babies, which is breast milk.

Can you share something about the WIC program that people in the community might not know?
There is more to WIC than the food benefits, there are a lot of other services. We have an amazing breastfeeding support team. We are here to help achieve your breastfeeding goal. WIC can also provide a breast pump!

If you could only give one piece of advice about nutrition to the general community, what would it be?
Reduce your intake of added sugars. Instead of drinking soda, try water, flavored seltzer or a warm tea.
