Hi there! My name is Andrea Ramirez and I am so excited to be a part of the New Little Life community and provide support as an IBCLC & pumping expert. I am a parent of 3 silly and wonderful children who are 18, 15, and 11, and have personally spent 2 years as a pumping parent in the workplace.

With 8 years of experience in the caregiving field and 5 years as a Lactation Consultant, I have dedicated my career to helping parents navigate the challenges of parenthood, especially when it comes to breastfeeding and returning to work. I have 5 years of experience in the health tech space, where I've had the pleasure of supporting parents and caregivers with a warm, empathetic, and evidence-based approach. I absolutely love finding solutions to problems and working with parents to develop a plan that fits their unique situations.

I am thrilled to be a part of the team and I'm eager to connect with each and every member of the New Little Life community!

Hi! I’m Emma. I’m a mom of two, fueled by Dr. Pepper and a mega sweet tooth. My interests are all over the place, which is why I love being an executive assistant for New Little Life! I get to write, create, analyze and try tons of different things in this corner of the internet. When I’m not chasing my crazy kids, or working with Allison, I love exploring my city of Boston, doing DIY projects, and rewatching Gilmore Girls.
