Shannon Wasiolek

“I joined New Mom’s Board of Directors in 2016. I started my career in non-profit and have a deep value of service as I grew up supporting my mom who was a director of development for ASPIRO in Green Bay, WI. I was searching for an organization that matched both my values and passion for racial/gender equity when I got introduced to New Moms. To me it was a perfect fit both in mission and work ahead to drive growth for more services and equitable experiences for those who need it.”
