What We Do

What to Say Initiative

We are creating a cultural shift

Providing adult role models a new framework to adopt and teach young people: health and well-being are the priority over everything else. 

For adults who have struggled with body image and “figuring out food,” we want an alternative to the cultural status quo of diets and body ideals. We want this for ourselves, and we want to pass it on to the kids who look up to us.

WithAll’s What to Say offers adults an alternative, a peaceful way of relating to body and food with health as the priority. Through awareness campaigns and actionable resources, we help adults confidentially pass this on to young people. 

Support Program

As we work to make this cultural shift a reality, from diets and disease around food to a peaceful focus on health and well-being, we remain dedicated to financially supporting those who are working to recover from an eating disorder that has upended their lives.

80% of those suffering with eating disorders are unable to access treatment, primarily due to financial barriers.

Research has shown that completing intensive treatment is critical to long-term, sustainable recovery.
It’s a bold mission. We aim to serve millions of people with simple, accessible resources to shift our culture to one that prioritizes health and well-being above all else, while also doing all we can to support the recovery of those who are ill with an eating disorder.

With you, we are reclaiming ourselves and our lives from the clutches of diet culture, “body ideals”, and eating disorders. And we are paving a new way forward for young people, one that emphasizes health and well-being above all.

Shannon assists with the logistics of development and operations and making every day run as smoothly as possible. Her day-to-day focuses on our Recovery Support Program, budget management, events, and administrative support. She enjoys being part of the nonprofit world and finding ways to help enhance the organization. She has a heart for serving others and helping people succeed.

Shannon has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Health & Exercise Science from Gustavus Adolphus College and a Master’s in Public Health (MPH) from Walden University.

Outside of work, you can find Shannon chasing her two girls around, attending sporting events and finding the next brewery or winery to explore.

Lindsay leads our operations, programming, fundraising, and communications to better fulfill our mission. She enjoys engaging with our supporters and stakeholders to build stronger connections to our work. Outside the office, you can find her planning her next trip, exploring the Twin Cities, or reading her book club’s latest pick.

With ten years of experience in nonprofit and foundation administration, Lindsay is a creative project manager working to strengthen all our operations. She loves being a part of a team deeply dedicated to discovering innovative and effective strategies to end eating disorders and is excited to invite others into this important work. Efficient and collaborative, she executes activity across all operations, including fundraising, events, communications, and programming. Lindsay has a bachelor’s degree in public relations from the University of Northwestern, St. Paul, and a fundraising certificate from the University of St. Thomas. She and her family live in Richfield, MN.

As Executive Director, Lisa leads WithAll’s strategic growth as a sustainable social enterprise dedicated to the prevention of and healing from eating disorders.

Lisa has more than 20 years of experience in public affairs, community relations, and law, and nearly 15 years of experience in non-profit leadership, most recently at Minnesota Public Radio/American Public Media. She is a graduate of Mitchell Hamline School of Law, a member of the Minnesota Bar, and a Minnesota Supreme Court appointee to Minnesota’s Lawyers Professional Responsibility Board. She volunteers with her daughter’s school and with youth sports.

Lisa does this work because she knows eating disorders are not a choice; they are deadly, and they are everywhere. She also knows kids are not born with harmful thoughts and actions around food or their body—and it’s our job as adults to keep it this way so they can focus their precious brains and time on things that matter.

Lisa finds laughter, all children, and the numerous variations of sparkling water to be delightful.
