Executive Director:

Shannon is Adalyn’s mama and the founder of the Acts For Adalyn Foundation. She graduated from Rollins College with a degree in psychology and has worked in Children’s Ministries for most of her life. She is currently completing her certification to be a Bereavement Doula in hopes to be able to be of more assistance to grieving mothers. The foundation has been structured so that Shannon is the person that each of the mamas interacts with when they become part of Acts For Adalyn. It has been her desire to give grieving toddler loss mamas a place where others can truly use the words, “I understand”. 


The Acts For Adalyn Foundation has a committee made up of some of Shannon’s family and friends. They each bring a unique perspective to the foundation. Some of them knew and loved Adalyn while others never got to meet her but have fallen in love with Adalyn’s legacy. The committee works behind the scenes to ensure that there is always a place for grieving mothers to share their grief journey with others that truly understand.


You can usually find the committee members wearing their Adalyn Pink at our events.
