Mary Jackson is a licensed CLC and Vice President of Reaching Our Sisters Everywhere, Inc. (“ROSE”), which is also a party to the lawsuit. Her experience in lactation consulting spans nearly three decades. Mary’s passion for helping families led her to change careers and become a lactation consultant after the birth of her second child. She works at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, where she works with the Women Infants and Children (WIC) program and is co-chair of Grady’s Baby Friendly Initiative and previously served as the president of the Georgia Breastfeeding Coalition. Mary’s expertise is widely recognized. She has taught breastfeeding principles to Emory and Morehouse medical school students. She has trained doctors and nurses at hospitals around the country.

Instead, she will be reassigned to a purely educational role and other hospital duties.
