Amanda RN, BSN, IBCLC
Amanda started her career at Nebraska Medicine in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in 2001. The relationships she developed with her patients and their families were truly the most rewarding aspect of her work. As she married and had her first, second, and then third child, she struggled and then overcame her own hurdles with breastfeeding. Her passion to help others succeed with their own breastfeeding goals soon became too strong to ignore. She transferred to Women’s Services in 2015 and then to the Lactation Team, where she feels truly blessed for the opportunity to come alongside other mamas, cheering and supporting them toward their own success!
Jen RN, IBCLC
Jen started working in the newborn nursery right out of school and never left. More than 10 years later, she has loved each of her roles in caring for moms and babies and has been part of the lactation team since 2013. Jen struggled with breastfeeding her own children initially and formula fed her first two babies. She now has six children and after breastfeeding her last few, she brings a strong desire to support and educate parents on all types of feeding practices.
Jill RN, BSN, IBCLC, ANLC
In 2012, after working in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit as a nurse, having her first child and overcoming common breastfeeding hiccups, Jill decided to become an international board certified lactation consultant and then an advanced nurse lactation consultant. She loves instilling confidence in moms and dads, often while discussing the seemingly strange but normal things babies and breasts do. Jill has three boys, too young yet for school, making her home a noisy and lively one.
Lacey RN, IBCLC
With three kiddos, including a set of twins, Lacey is our breastfeeding twins expert! She breastfed her daughter and twins into toddlerhood.

Lacey became a lactation consultant at Nebraska Medicine in Bellevue in 2014, and received her IBCLC in 2015. She is now enjoying her same role at our Nebraska Medical Center campus.
