Dr. Sharifa Glass is a pediatrician, lactation consultant, media expert, and corporate consultant. She is a native Houstonian and was ranked 3rd in her graduating class at Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professions, a nationally ranked and awarded school. She continued her studies at the University of Houston where she graduated with High Honors and a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. Her educational journey took her to Drexel University College of Medicine where she received her medical degree (M.D.) before she returned back to the Houston area. There, she completed a pediatric residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Since finishing residency, Dr. Glass has worked in general pediatrics, pediatric emergency medicine, and pediatric urgent care medicine. She is board-certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners. Dr. Glass has been designated as a Fellow in the American Academy of Pediatrics, and she is a member of several professional organizations including the United States Lactation Consultant Association and the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine. She also holds an adjunct position as a clinical assistant professor at Tilman J. Fertitta Family College of Medicine at the University of Houston and is a member of the medical school's Admissions Committee. A nationally recognized pediatric and lactation expert, Dr. Glass has been featured on several media outlets including WebMD, Parents, Romper, Medela.com, and more.
Dr. Glass is a wife and mother to two young children. Both children were breastfed thanks to the support of her family and the children’s pediatrician. As a result of her breastfeeding journey, she was inspired to start this medical practice to support all mothers in reaching their breastfeeding goals. Dr. Glass also desired to open a pediatric office that would provide evidence-based medical care for children in the comfort of their own homes and where caregivers could have their questions answered in a relaxed environment. Whatever your feeding preference may be (breastfeeding, expressed breast milk, or formula) and if you are looking for a personalized experience with your child’s healthcare, Dr. Glass would love for your family to join our family at The Vine.
