Ashlee is a Kentucky native, graduate of Eastern Kentucky University, and mother of two boys and a new baby girl. She knows the struggles of breastfeeding firsthand, and was inspired to become an IBCLC after becoming certified in childbirth education.

Morgan Cooper

Detail Management [Admin]

Morgan handles logistics and detail management for the company. She was born and raised in Kentucky, has a Business Management degree from the University of Kentucky, and homeschools her 3 rambunctious kids. Her experience runs from small business office and project management, customer relations, wedding coordination and even chocolate making.

After breastfeeding troubles with her firstborn, she attended a breastfeeding class during her 2nd pregnancy. The instructor was gracious and understanding, calmed fears and addressed concerns then encouraged the moms-to-be towards success. A couple years later when she met Elizabeth, Morgan connected the dots that she was the same woman who had taught the breastfeeding class. Small world! Baby #2 nursed until he was 14 months old.

Fast forward a couple more years to surprise baby #3 for Morgan. Elizabeth offered in-office lactation services to this mom in pain despite a well-fed growing baby. Now, Morgan seeks to serve the clients of Lactation Care with Elizabeth in their breastfeeding journey, managing the details so their goals can be reached, too!
