Kimberly Mansen is a Seattle-based NWMMB Board Member, remotely serving to support the board of directors. She is passionate about every infant receiving human milk and all mothers getting the support they need to provide what they are able.
Through her role at PATH, she fights for nutrition for all infants to thrive, supporting human milk banking internationally, including innovating to create low-cost technologies that support safe and quality access to human milk. When she is not working at the global level, she loves working with individual families and patients at Seattle Children’s Hospital as a pediatric dietitian.
Prior to fighting for human milk from her home roots of Seattle, Kimberly spent over a year coordinating research activities to study food insecurity in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It was there that her interest grew to support mothers to breastfeed that struggled to have enough milk. Prior to this she studied nutritional science at Pepperdine University, and continued on for a masters in international health nutrition at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, driven by her faith to give back to others for all that she had been given. When she’s not traversing the globe, or baking a pie in the kitchen at home, Kimberly loves to be practicing yoga or exploring the outdoors.
