Fight Hunger Week Chairperson
Published author of four children’s books, and a business owner, Shonjrell Ladner, Mrs. Tennessee International 2018, believes that every baby is, “Born to Kuddle.” She is an advocate in the prevention of Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, which occurs in newborns, as a result of a mother’s drug use during pregnancy. While Shonjrell is a member of over five organizations, she is most recognized as a “Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Cuddler” at the University of Tennessee Medical Center. Adding to her long list of accomplishments as an entrepreneur, Shonjrell is a patent pending inventor of the first medical wrap, designed for babies with NAS, “The NICU Kuddler.” Witnessing these babies firsthand during her own pregnancy hospitalization, she saw they needed extra love and attention, and continues to work tirelessly to improve their start to life. While becoming involved with many social issues in the community, she became an ambassador for “The Scarecrow Foundation” in 2017, to bring attention to the need of resources for feeding the hungry.
