Letter From Vergie
Dear LER community member:
As we move into 2020, I want to take this opportunity to catch you up on changes for me, Doug, and the Lactation Education Resources (LER) community.
As you may know, Doug and I retired this year. After more than 30 years of educating future lactation consultants, we are grateful for the opportunity to enjoy this new phase of our lives together. (If you are in the Maryland area, you might catch a glimpse of me enjoying a morning kayak trip!)
Before we could make this transition, it was important to us to ensure that the LER community was in capable hands. We were thrilled when Kirra Brandon stepped forward with her desire to lead and support LER’s students and instructors.
Of course, Kirra holds a deep commitment to LER’s mission, vision, and core values. She has been working closely with staff to make sure there has been a seamless transition of the high quality education and customer service that have always been central to the LER community.
I hope you will join me in welcoming Kirra to LER. I have no doubt that her leadership means that you will continue to enjoy the education and support for which LER is known.
Finally, I would like to share my gratitude with you for being a part of the LER community. Our students, instructors, advisors and staff together have provided evidence-based support to countless families thanks to your shared commitment to education. Thank you for all that you do on behalf of lactating families.
