"When I dare to be powerful - to use my strength in the service of my vision - then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid." Audre Lorde
I'm an experienced marketer, writer, equity strategist, board certified lactation consultant, and maternal and child health professional. I spent 5 years in consumer packaged goods marketing and community partnership building, followed by a decade of public relations and ghostwriting for budding authors. My most recent work is in lactation support and equity. My approach integrates a breadth of experience across career fields with personal experiences to inform a unique lens that delivers results grounded in compassion and empathy.
In a Nutshell
"I have known Nikki Killings for several years as a skilled, compassionate, and knowledgeable provider for mothers and babies. I admire that she supports all breastfeeding families no matter what and has worked for building greater partnerships and supports in the communities that she has served. She provides great care and research-based information in a helpful and loving way. You cannot find a better person to entrust with your needs." - SB
"I have been sharing the link to your talk to encourage all my local co-supporters and anyone else I think might find it useful to check it out.

I really appreciate your clear, fact based style and you truly exude a warmth I suspect makes your clients feel very comfortable." JF
