Shannan Elaine Clarke

Columbia, SC
Shannan is on a mission to improve breastfeeding rates among Black families by redefining support and education through technology.

Shannan Clarke is on a mission to redefine support for breastfeeding mothers. After returning to work just 10 weeks after giving birth, with a commitment to provide breastmilk to her new baby for as long as possible, Shannan experienced first-hand the roadblocks many mothers face in the workplace, providing her with the inspiration to create a solution to support breastfeeding mothers at work and beyond. In 2018, Shannan started Queen & Baby Box, a breastfeeding subscription box for working mothers. Today, with experience and a more clearly defined focus, Shannan is working to create a new model for breastfeeding education for Black mothers and families.

A multi-passionate activist and artist, Shannan has devoted her time to numerous national and international non-profit organizations spanning the arts, international affairs, social enterprise, and higher education.

Shannan serves on the Board of Directors for the Boston Association for Childbirth Education & Nursing/Nursing Mothers’ Council and is a current Vital Village Networks Certified Lactation Consultant (CLC) Breastfeeding Scholar. She is actively pursuing her International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) license.
