Ms Renee Kam,
IBCLC, physiotherapist, NDC practitioner, PhD candidate, Melbourne, Victoria,
BPhty, IBCLC Consultant, PhD Student

After debating whether to study veterinary science, dietetics or physiotherapy in high-school, Renee settled on physiotherapy, qualifying with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from The University of Melbourne in 2000. After having her first child in 2006 Renee discovered that she knew little about breastfeeding and wanted to know more. So, in 2010 Renee obtained a Certificate IV in Breastfeeding Education with the Australian Breastfeeding Association and to this day continues to work in both volunteer and paid capacities with the Association. But she wasn't done. In 2011, her book, The Newborn Baby Manual was published. But she still wasn't done. In 2012 she became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant. But, nope, she still wasn't done. Now, Renee is undertaking a PhD through La Trobe University investigating breast hypoplasia. Her PhD supervisors are Professor Lisa Amir and Dr Meabh Cullinane. Beyond a PhD Renee wishes to continue to work as a researcher.
