USLCA President’s Award

Congratulations to the 2020 winner!


The 2020 President’s Award goes to Sarah Lester, IBCLC

Being an IBCLC with her own private practice has been a dream career for Sarah Lester. Over the years, Sarah has grown her private practice and continues to serve her community, working every day to support and prolong breastfeeding relationships.

Sarah currently serves on the Parent Advisory Council for the NICU at her local hospital, advocating for breastfeeding families on the unit. She also helped create North Carolina’s first tongue tie clinic, which includes a dentist, a licensed bodyworker, and herself. Recently, Sarah opened the very first breastfeeding and postpartum wellness center in her state where she looks forward to supporting breastfeeding families as well as parents who are living with perinatal and postpartum mood disorders.

Over the past few years, Sarah has helped build USLCA’s group membership numbers. By promoting membership to her contacts and colleagues, Sarah’s efforts have resulted in a significant number of USLCA membership renewals/activations. We would like to recognize Sarah’s passion, dedication, and commitment to USLCA and to the lactation profession.
