Shannon Haddad grew up in Melbourne Beach, Florida, and will forever identify herself as a beach girl at heart. She attended Florida State University and, after graduation, was brought to New Orleans with a little help from divine Providence. While living in New Orleans, Shannon studied at Notre Dame Seminary, where she completed her master’s in Theological Studies and was blessed to study with her husband, Jordan. Shannon and her family currently reside in Kenner, and she is now working as the executive director of the Archdiocese of New Orleans Retreat Center. Shannon and Jordan have a 3-year-old daughter Lily who is their ultimate pride and joy.
