Rue Khosa, AKA The Boob Boss, is the owner/founder of The Perfect Push, a lactation and parenting wellness clinic in downtown Redmond. She is a board certified family nurse practitioner, lactation consultant and a childbirth educator.

Rue was born and raised Zimbabwe, where family plays a critical role in supporting expectant and new parents. This type of communal caring, called “kugarira”, helps families prepare for a new baby both emotionally and physically and guides them through the often challenging newborn period. Rue created The Perfect Push to bring that experience to Seattle.

Rue began her women’s health career as a labor and delivery nurse over 10 years ago, at Washington Hospital Centre in DC. She received her graduate degree from Georgetown University, and her undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Prior to opening her private practice, Rue was a Teaching Associate in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine and an Adjunct Clinical Faculty at Northwest University Buntain School of Nursing.

In July 2019, Rue was commissioned by the Mayor to the City of Redmond’s Human Services Commission. In addition, she has taken a more active role supporting the Program for Early Parent Support (PEPS) and joining the board of directors. In February 2020, Rue was invited to join Washington State Hospital Association’s Safe Delivery Roadmap Commission. She sits on their Birth Equity task force working on program development. She also sits on the board of No More Under, a 501c3 organization committed to  drowning prevention and awareness.

In 2015, Rue established the Northwest FamilyFest (NWFF) – a fun, family-focused charity event that celebrates local businesses and community. The 4th Annual NWFF held on August 3rd in the Redmond Downtown Park was an overwhelming success raising over $3000 all of which was donated to local charities. In August 2019, anguished by the loss of her father and abominable healthcare disparities affecting women of color and immigrants here in the US Rue founded The Perfect Push Foundation. The Perfect Push Foundation (TPPF) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization focused on empowering the underserved and at-risk to address maternal and fetal mortality in their communities here in the United States and around the world.

When she is not working to redefine the childbirth and parenting experience, Rue is a wife and mother of two boys (7 and 3).
