I am a mother and educator who wants to help all of our children.
I’ve been teaching since 2004 and I’m proud to be the president of the American Breastfeeding Association (ABCA).
My job is to help empower women and their families to have access to quality breastfeeding care, including formula, formula plus, and breastfeeding products.
I believe that every woman deserves access to formula, and that’s why I am the EVA Education Specialist.
As a breastfeeding educator, I help families who are breastfeeding with information about breastfeeding, breastfeeding products, and formula.
I also help families and families educate themselves about breastfeeding issues, breastfeeding supplies, and breastmilk.
I am the president and CEO of the Breastfeeding Educators Association (BEEA).
This group was founded to help educate mothers and educators about the benefits of breastfeeding and the benefits to women and families who breastfeed.
In 2017, we helped educate more than 5 million women about breastfeeding.
In 2018, we added 2 million more women to the ranks of breastfeeding educators.
BEEA’s mission is to educate and empower women to breastfeed, and to help make breastfeeding accessible to women of all ages and abilities.
In 2019, we launched the first-ever Breastfeeding and Nutrition Education Program, offering $5 million in grants to organizations and individuals in breastfeed education and support.
This program was launched in partnership with the National Breastfeeding Coalition.
In 2019, BEEAs partner organizations awarded $4.2 million in funding for breastfeeding education.
Bees and we can all do more to encourage and empower breastfeeding in every family.
BEEAs breastfed mothers were among the most likely to become pregnant, and in 2018, BeeABS was named the most trusted breastfeeding resource in America by USA Today.
In addition, in 2018 BEEAS was recognized as one of the most successful programs in the country by National Association of State Breastfeeding Administrators (NASBRA).
As president of BEEs parent organization, the Breastfeed Educators’ Association (BEA), I am committed to creating a safer and healthier future for women by providing breastfed women with a safe, affordable, and effective means of breastfeeding and to educate women about breastmilks benefits.
We are proud to offer this special discount to help more women have access.
As you know, I’m an educator.
I teach at public schools, including a school that has more than 10,000 students.
In my classroom, I work with parents, teachers, nurses, and school administrators to give parents access to a wide range of breastfeeding supplies and information about breast milk.
I work to make breastfeeding a safe and affordable experience for all.
I am also proud to support breastfeeding as an education tool for mothers and for women who are lactating.
