Shawlini Manjunath-Holbrook, or “Shawl”, is an Indian-American mother, actress, producer, bookworm and animal advocate. Originally from Augusta, GA, she is southern at heart, but loves living in NYC with her husband, two-year-old daughter, and two rescue dogs, Lucy and Webster. In 2017, Shawl’s passion for Hallmark movies led her to create “The Bubbly Sesh Podcast” with gal pal Jacklyn Collier, or “Jacks”. The vibrant duo quickly earned the backing of the loyal Hallmark fanbase and landed the incredible opportunity as the new hosts of the company’s official podcast, newly titled “Hallmark Channels’ Bubbly Sesh”. Shawl can’t wait to “sesh” about romance, relationships and her favorite films each week.
