Brie Weigandt, Fundraising and Community Outreach Coordinator
Brie brings her passion for breastfeeding equality to her role at the Foundation! As a first-time breastfeeding parent, she struggled at the beginning and looked for support from an IBCLC. This help was integral to the successful breastfeeding journey she is on with her son, and in an effort to ensure all families have this opportunity she has made breastfeeding equality and advocacy a part of her life's work.
Brie grew up in Burlington, Vermont and received her B.S from Skidmore College in upstate New York. She has experience with Non-profit Campaign Fundraising and is passionate about connecting with the people and world around her, striving to make a positive impact for her family and her community. Brie lives in San Diego with her husband, young son and three cats.
