Kentina Washington Leapheart
Kentina is an educator, consultant, advocate, and spiritual leader/companion who has dedicated the last 12 years of her life to causes related to reproductive justice, comprehensive sexuality education, end-of-life care, and interreligious dialogue and understanding. As a former NICU chaplain, a Breastfeeding Peer Educator, and as a mother who nursed her own daughter, Kentina knows firsthand the life-changing effect that is possible when all mothers have access to compassionate, culturally competent, full-spectrum breastfeeding education and support, including donor milk. Kentina earned a bachelor’s degree in public administration from Miami University and a Master of Divinity degree from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. She finds great joy in her identities as a Black, queer, womanist whose lived experiences inform every aspect of her work.
