My name is Kavisa (she/her). I'm an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), Prenatal & Vinyasa Yoga teacher, and business owner of Nourishing Justly. I completed UC San Diego's Lactation Consultant Program with a clinical externship at UC Davis Medical Hospital. I also serve as Secretary for the Sacramento Breastfeeding Coalition. I received my ​Prenatal Yoga Teacher certification from Jane Austin's Mama Tree Yoga School and Yoga Teacher Training from Laughing Lotus in NYC. My work is centered around justice, health equity, and nourishing community well-being.
I'm a data nerd hence my bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Northwestern University and my previous career in Data Management Consulting. I'm originally from New York and now live in Sacramento, CA. 


I met my husband in Tanzania while we were both teaching high school Physics and Math as Peace Corps Volunteers. As a result, both my husband and I speak Swahili. Our family was created via a blend of foster care adoption and biological birth. We have 2 daughters and 2 sons.
