Kara Rosales – 2015 Hellen Sullivan Scholarship Recipient
Kara Rosales, recipient of the 2015 Hellen Sullivan Scholarship Award, is a La Leche League leader, member of the Tarrant County Breastfeeding Coalition, and an intern with a local lactation consultant in Arlington, Texas. She helps the lactation consultant run a free breastfeeding support group (For Babies’ Sake) and helps with a Latch Clinic twice a month. She has applied to take the IBLCE exam this summer and will use the Scholarship to pay the exam fee.
Kara has a seven-year-old daughter and a four-year-old son who inspired her to work with breastfeeding mothers. She has participated in several Big Latch-On events and the Milk and Cookies event sponsored by Tarrant County Breastfeeding Coalition. Her La Leche League group has donated items to the silent auction.
After passing the IBLCE exam, Kara plans to be a private practice lactation consultant. She will continue her work with La Leche League and with the For Babies’ Sake breastfeeding support group.
