Kathryn L. Snowden, BSN, RN, IBCLC

Kathryn Snowden joined the practice in October 2021. Kathryn was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, and grew up as a patient in the Carithers Group practice. She attended Bishop Snyder High School followed by The Florida State University where she majored in Pure Mathematics and Secondary Education. She went on to obtain a nursing degree at The University of North Florida. Kathryn spent three years in Washington, DC and another two years in Jacksonville, FL as a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) nurse. She served her units as charge nurse, research committee chair, and breastfeeding resource. Throughout her time at the bedside, Kathryn honed her lactation knowledge and skill set to obtain her certification as an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). 

Kathryn is an IBCLC and enjoys working closely with infants during the early days of life and into toddlerhood. She has a special interest in working with premature infants, former NICU parent-infant dyads, and parents of multiples. To ensure her patients receive the best information possible, Kathryn highly values research as the cornerstone of her evidence-based practice.

Her passion for lactation stems from her time as a bedside nurse, as well as her own pregnancies and lactation journeys. Lactation consultants saved her breastfeeding experience with her first child. With lactation support being so integral to the success of an infant and breastfeeding parent, she desires to make these services more accessible in our community. In cooperation with Carithers Pediatric Group, services are now available in-office to help parents achieve their lactation goals.

She currently lives in St. Nicholas with her husband, two preschoolers, and newborn. In her spare time, Kathryn enjoys soaking up every minute with her family, going on walks in her historic neighborhood, watching Florida State football, and serving as a Committee Member for the Rachel Quiñones Memorial 5k.
