Cassandra "Cassie" Partridge is a Registered Nurse and an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant who joined Capital Area Pediatrics in October 2019. Cassie relocated to Virginia in 2019 from Washington State, the Pacific Northwest. She has been a maternal-child health nurse since 2001. She has worked with moms and babies in the hospital, community, public health and home settings. Originally on the path to becoming a midwife, Cassie has found her niche "midwifing" women as a lactation consultant through the joys and challenges of breastfeeding. Cassie is the oldest of 3 girls. She credits her own mother with giving her the gift of breastfeeding for 3 years and building a lifelong foundation for health and wellness. She is passionate about paying that gift forward by supporting moms and babies on their breastfeeding journey. Cassie has a special place in her heart for first time moms. She uses an integrative approach with a special interest in maternal mental health. She enjoys empowering women to reach their breastfeeding goals and helping babies to breastfeed successfully. In her free time, you can find Cassie exercising her "green thumb" in the garden, being a mom to her 3 adorable cats and the "cool aunt" to a tribe of precocious nieces and nephews.
