Welcome to my online home!

I’m excited to share my journey and experiences with you all. Below is what you can find:

Meet Shalane: Here you can read more about me in my bio and accolades section.

My Thoughts: Check back regularly as I update this section and share my perspectives on pregnancy and infant loss, workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion, and then my own brand of #BlackGirlMagic.

My Published Thoughts: I’ve spoken and presented at various engagements. You can listen to them here!

Let’s Connect and Open Mic: If you are interested in chatting more, please connect with me. And last, but certainly not least, please use our Open Mic to share your thoughts, opinions, and perspectives.

Happy Navigating!

Why I Made This Web site

I created MeetShalane as a place to get to know me: A single mom, A boss, A loving girlfriend, An ex-fiance, A survivor, A thriver, A former expat, A traveler, and someone who tries to live out their faith day by day. I hope you will find the resources, stories and experiences helpful as you navigate your everyday. I would also love to hear from you! You can book a time with me under “Let’s Connect” or leave a note in the forum. It’s very much a work in progress, so appreciate any and all feedback!
