Kiera Schminke

SDCBC Secretary

Kiera is an accomplished health education specialist bringing passion to wellness, behavior, and cultural responsiveness. Kiera has worked in a variety of health-focused areas such as program implementation, health promotion, community outreach, tobacco & suicide prevention, maternal child health, advocacy and policy. She is a zealous breastfeeding advocate and always envisioned nursing her children, but when they both presented with tongue-tie she was significantly challenged. With the support of family, a dedicated IBCLC, and the breastfeeding community they were able to overcome! She deeply believes every mom and baby should have equitable breastfeeding opportunity and support. She lives in Carlsbad with her husband, two young girls and a dog named Karl.
