Meet the Instructors

Get to know our instructors.



Wendy Adkins, RN, BSN, RHIA, CLE Wendy has been a labor and delivery nurse for over 10 years and has been a prenatal educator since 2011. During her classes she likes to help expectant parents create a “tool box” full of anatomy terms, pain control methods, postpartum care, newborn care and hands-on breastfeeding training. As a lactation educator, she will help you relate breastfeeding to eating a “turkey sandwich.” Wendy has been married 20 years, has two teenage daughters and a farm full of critters! 

Kristy Harley, RN, IBCLC Kristy has been a pediatric nurse for 18 years in various healthcare settings. She developed an interest in providing lactation support to families after her own journey through breastfeeding her 3 children. She has been a part of Wilmington Health Pediatrics team for more than 10 years and serves as a Volunteer Lactation Peer Counselor at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.
