Lenna Gregory, BA, CLE

Lenna first connected with the lactation space in Colorado in 2002 when she worked for Colorado Health Foundation’s Lactation Program, one of the oldest medically-based outpatient lactation services in the state at that time. In 2013, she became a Milk Technician at Children’s Hospital Colorado where she coordinated human milk feedings in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and provided resources and support to new parents. In 2018, she began working at Mothers’ Milk Bank as a Laboratory Technician and later as a Donor Relations Coordinator. In her current role as MMB’s Donor Relations and Outreach Manager, she plays a critical role in connecting the organization with new parents, both by guiding them through the milk donation process and by offering education and lactation support. She is a Certified Lactation Educator (CLE) with a bachelor’s degree in communications. Lenna is committed to keeping the precious resource of donor human milk available to the families that need it, and to educating care providers about the benefits to babies, especially the most fragile ones.

Outside of the milk bank, Lenna enjoys exploring urban and mountain trails in her native state of Colorado with her beloved Border Collie and sampling local food trucks with her husband and two young adult children.

She looks forward to her role on the HMBANA Board of Directors in upholding standards for excellence and safety across the associated milk banks and will offer her experience and perspective to advance the nonprofit milk banking industry as a whole.
