Annie Frisbie IBCLC, MA & family

Ihave been an IBCLC in private practice since 2011. My background is in media, where I worked very closely with producers, content developers, and tech thought leaders on business strategy, content development, contracts, legal clearances, and more. I’ve also produced training for professional media software solutions as well as created and managed print and video content for media professionals.

In 2018 I was honored with the US Lactation Consultant Association's President's Award, "awarding those that demonstrate extraordinary service to the association and profession."

I'm a produced screenwriter and proud member of the Writers Guild of America, East. I have a BA from Franklin and Marshall College, and an MA in Cinema Studies from New York University. In a previous life I was a film critic. I live with my husband and our two children in Queens, New York.

As lactation professionals, our belief is that ethical, compassionate, and efficacious care for our clients is necessary for assisting them to reach their individual goals and to effect societal change in infant feeding practices and related health outcomes across populations. This requires us to strive for excellence and integrity in our use of technology, in the development of our business practices, and in our compliance with privacy and copyright laws.

I believe that this is impossible without addressing racism, sexism, ableism, and all other forms of oppressive and inequitable attitudes that keep greedy, cruel, inhumane, and sadistic forces in power in society at the direct and quantifiable expense of black and brown people whose countries and cultures have been colonized over centuries. It is my personal and professional goal to be part of social progress that exposes power structures based upon privilege, inequaility, suppression, bias, exploitation, and control.
