Gina Cicatelli Ciagne, CLC

Breastfeeding Advocate, Educator, and Speaker; Worksite Wellness Advisor; Communications and CPG Strategist
“I could talk about breastfeeding for hours to any audience of any size, and I channel my passion to make a global impact on women and children.” Gina has worn many hats in her career as a breastfeeding educator and advocate, including healthcare and breastfeeding technical advisor, marketing strategist, consumer and healthcare provider resource, corporate media spokesperson and policy and legislative advocate. Necessity is the mother of invention – and of advocacy - and Gina became involved in this world with a specific interest in workplace breastfeeding support after personal experience with a breastfeeding-apathetic employer. Finding her calling, she switched her career mid-stream and went on to co-manage the Department of Health & Human Services/Office on Women's Health/Ad Council National Breastfeeding Awareness Campaign. The stars continued to align and Gina brought her advocacy and technical skills, marketing expertise, and relationships with the breastfeeding, lactation and medical organizations to global breastfeeding accessories leader, Lansinoh. As a member of the senior management team, she helped the business grow threefold within the 12 years she was there with her perfect blend of business talent and desire to promote and support breastfeeding. A nationally recognized speaker and expert in the area of women's health, infant feeding and nutrition, breastfeeding and lactation, Gina has appeared on the global news stage as well as nationally on NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox News, CNN as well as featured on radio, blogs, and in digital and print publications including as a regular contributor to Huffington Post. Gina has a BA in International Studies from the University of Dayton, a MS in Public and Community Health from Trinity University and is a Certified Lactation Consultant (CLC). When she’s not cheering on new moms, you can find her road tripping with her children in their breastfeeding-bedazzled truck.
