The Bay Street Family is very excited to add a new member to our provider family. Clara Bowron is a Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and Certified Lactation Consultant who will be joining Dr. Lori and Dr. Nicole in caring for our Bay Street Families.
She has always worked with and for children in a variety of roles. After graduating from Mount Holyoke College, Clara’s work on behalf of children in the foster care system led her to attend Suffolk University Law School to become an attorney working as a child advocate. After several years in the field of children’s law, Clara felt called to serve young people in a different capacity and enrolled at Yale School of Nursing with a specialty in pediatric primary care. She had the experience of incredible clinical rotations at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and the Children’s Emergency Department at Yale New Haven Hospital as well as two full years of primary care training at Guilford Pediatrics. Clara is a certified lactation counselor and enjoys helping new parents and their infants successfully establish and continue breastfeeding.
Clara has raised two sons and a daughter both as a stay-at-home mom and later while working full-time as an attorney. Several years ago, Clara and her children decided to become a licensed respite foster care home which was a wonderful, challenging, and poignant experience for everyone. Clara has enjoyed many adventures including dairy farming in New Zealand, sailing across the Atlantic Ocean, and surfing in the North Sea. Her goal is to help her patients grow up healthy and happy so that they, too, will create and experience their own exciting and joyful adventures!
We are very excited to have her on board and know that you will all welcome her !!
