The Team

We are your local breastfeeding peer counselors through Indiana WIC. We are here to support as many moms as we can with breastfeeding needs; from latching to pumping, from nursing in our office to nursing at a local business.

Heather Solfronk

WIC Supervisor, RD.

As a WIC Supervisor, I work closely with WIC staff to deliver excellent client care. As a Registered Dietitian, I stay up to date on evidence-based research that can benefit moms, dads, caregivers, infants and children. When not enjoying adorable baby smiles at work, I like to spend time with my husband, 2 kids and 4 dogs, hiking, playing games, gardening, reading, and drinking tea!

Randii Davis

Breastfeeding Peer Counselor, IBCLC, CLS

Hi, I’m Randii. I’m a #boymom of 2 extraordinary little gentlemen! I’ve worked with breastfeeding moms for 6 years and counting. I had a very rough road getting to where I am, filled with isolation, baby blues, and then post-partum depression. I remember looking down at my second son and thinking to myself “Wow, he looks safe with me, he trusts me, and…he has thigh rolls.” It was here where my journey began, helping mothers with breastfeeding and becoming more confident in themselves.
