SDCBC Board and Team
The San Diego County Breastfeeding Coalition is supported through an all-volunteer board and hardworking volunteers and community leaders. The board consists of physicians, registered dietitians, lactation consultants, and community leaders who are passionate about making breastfeeding attainable for all mothers and babies.
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.
