Featured Speaker

Lisa Marasco

Lisa Marasco has been working with breastfeeding mothers for over 30 years .  Originally an accountant, Lisa fell in love with breastfeeding her own children and decided to change her career path, first by becoming a La Leche League Leader and then later pursuing a Master's degree in Human Lactation with specialization in Lactation, becoming an IBCLC in 1993. Her thesis on Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and breastfeeding was the first to investigate infertility and hormonal-related causes of insufficient milk production, and has since spawned new inquiries into other hormonal connections. Driven by a passion to help her clients, Lisa has researched many challenging situations and  shared her discoveries in articles, conferences, online support groups,  and through co-authoring The Breastfeeding Mother's Guide to Making More Milk as well as the chapter on Low Milk Production and Infant Weight in the Core Curriculum for Interdisciplinary Lactation Care. Her most recent projects included a seminal article on Unsolved Mysteries of the Human Mammary Gland and  a Cochrane Review of oral galactogogues. In recognition of her contributions, Lisa was designated a Fellow of ILCA in 2009 and received the USLCA Award of Excellence for Research for 2018.  She resides in Santa Maria, California and currently works as an IBCLC for the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department Nutrition Services/ WIC. Lisa and her husband Tom have 4 grown children and 7 grandchildren, all proudly breastfed.
