This #MemberMonday meet Southeast Parent Ambassador: Shannon Cloud!
Shannon lives in Smyrna, GA (in the metro Atlanta area) with her husband Blaine and their three children. Their oldest child, Alaina, was diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome in 2009 at age 4.
Shannon is originally from Pickerington, Ohio and graduated from Florida State University in 1997 with a degree in Management Information Systems. She recently left a 20 year career in IT consulting to focus more on her family, advocacy and helping others. She and her husband have been advocating for medical cannabis in Georgia for several years on behalf of Alaina and patients with other debilitating conditions.
Shannon and her family have attended all three DSF conferences and have worked with other Atlanta area families to host several walk events to benefit the DSF since 2011. She is looking forward to the opportunity to help other Dravet parents on their journey.
