The Board of Directors of the International Lactation Consultants Association is pleased to announce the hiring of a new Executive Director, Jessica Lytle.
Some of you may have had the opportunity to meet Jessica at a conference or work with her on a committee as she has been on staff with ILCA for the last five years in a number of capacities.
She was chosen based on her strategic organizational skills, her knowledge of the organization, and her deep commitment to the mission and vision of ILCA, including the advancement of the IBCLC profession worldwide.
Jessica brings nearly 20 years in non-profit management experience, including serving as ILCA’s membership manager and assistant executive director. She is particularly committed to ensuring ILCA’s global impact and to working towards the organizational mission.
In her past roles at ILCA, she was instrumental in the shift to equity pricing for membership, which has increased ILCA’s accessibility to lactation supporters in lower-resource countries around the globe. She also played a key role in the initial development of the Global Partners Program.
Jessica has recently served as ILCA’s interim executive director. During this time, she has already begun the process of streamlining both staff and volunteer operations, ensuring that time and talent are spent as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Jessica lives in North Carolina. When she is not supporting ILCA, she spends her time with her husband and two boys on the baseball field.
We hope you will join us at the upcoming ILCA conference in Portland, Oregon, United States where you will have the opportunity to meet Jessica face-to-face.
