Jennie Toland

Jennie Toland, BSN, RN, IBCLC, is a Co-Executive of the Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition. Her nursing experience includes working within hospital settings and public health with diverse populations who experience barriers to health equity. Her personal experiences breastfeeding her children for various durations using multiple modalities made it clear to her how support and education are critical in achieving fulfilling breastfeeding journeys. The combination of her professional and personal experiences fuels her desire to advocate for breastfeeding/chestfeeding families. In 2018 she led the formation of the Ford County Breastfeeding Coalition and continues to serve as its volunteer Executive Director. Jennie brings a fresh and unique perspective to the KBC and she is eager to find creative ways to connect communities and families across the state to normalize breast/chestfeeding.
