More About Andrea Levesque
I was a primary school teacher who decided to become a stay-at-home mom after the birth of Tristan in April, 2008. I absolutely adored being a mommy. I loved reading books, playing play-doh and singing songs with my little guy all day. Ok, there were some not so fun parts too (the endless cleaning!) but it was all worth it to see my little guy growing up a little more every day. As I watched him grow, my mind began to wonder what I would do when I eventually headed back into the workforce.
I love babies. I love breastfeeding. I love teaching. So I have decided to pursue a career in lactation consultancy. I currently have an internship at a local community health centre, and I am working to complete my coursework online.
After our little Logan joined us in October 2010, I took a year off from studying to bring my focus back to the family. Now I am back at it again – taking courses and completing my clinical hours to get me closer to certification.
The lactation consultant profession is right in line with my personal philosophies and this career will allow me to have my own business. Having my own practice means I can set my own hours and make sure I am home to get Tristan and Logan on and off the bus to school, and will hopefully allow me some flexibility in my hours so that I can be involved in their school life once the time comes.
Certification is a couple of years away, which suits me just fine as I want to spend these precious early years at home. Eventually, I hope that this will become the webpage for my lactation consultant business!
