WBFM Founder: Shannon Crowder
Shannon founded Work Breastfeed Mom in 2019 during her second round of pumping at work. She was tired of googling the same pumping questions over and over again, and discouraged by the lack of websites aimed at working breastfeeding moms. So, she created one herself. Shannon lives, works, and doles out Puffs to her little people in sunny Florida. She has an MBA and works as a strategic planner for a large healthcare system. She is passionate about coffee, memoirs, paddle boarding, and skincare routines. Shannon is mom to Scarlett (7), Ivy (4), and Georgia (1). She’s been pregnant, breastfeeding, or pumping for 7 years straight–all while working full time. One of her goals is to prove you can have your cake (a beautiful family) and eat it, too (plus a successful career).
