Khadija Garrison Adams

Khadija Garrison Adams is a proud native New Orleanian, Black woman, wife, mother, nerd, writer, speaker, singer, breastfeeding advocate, committed Christian, and mediocre knitter. A lifelong builder of bridges, Khadija is a brilliant curator of conversation, who uses good words, better listening skills and a little bit of laughter to put people at ease while delivering hard truths like good medicine. Khadija was a double major (Psychology/Religion) at Ohio Wesleyan University (2004) and then spent nearly a decade as a missionary to college students.

Today, she spends her working hours crafting important documents involving pending and passed legislation for the government. In 2015, Khadija co-founded Black Lactation Circle Central Ohio, a more than 700 member strong in person and online community for Black pregnant and nursing mothers, birth workers, and health professionals, empowering women in Metro Columbus to meet their breastfeeding goals. Khadija, her husband, three daughters, and their VERY affectionate Rottweiler live on an unexpectedly bucolic tract of land in Columbus, Ohio.
