Mixing her desire to imagine with a quest to explore and share, Hallee became a teacher and earned a PhD. She was determined to unleash the extraordinary talents of her elementary through university students. She has mentored student and adult writers, hosted community access days to the amazing Franklin Institute, and chaired family events like Swish for Schools and the Please Touch Museum’s Storybook Ball. Adelman advocates for quality education and has worked with local businesses and SDP to provide internships for District students. She has been honored to support child/teen-focused organizations such as Donors Choose, Franklin Institute, CHOP, Simon’s Heart, and the Wissahickon Charter Schools.
With a love of story, Hallee co-founded World of HA Productions to develop impactful films and support passionate filmmakers. Some titles include The Social Dilemma, US Kids and The Truffle Hunters. She is co-directing/producing Our American Family, currently in post.
Through all of her efforts, Hallee’s goal has been for all children, teens and storytellers to have opportunities to imagine boundlessly, unlock their strengths and discover their passions.
Hallee has two amazing daughters and mohawked dogs named Romeo and May. Thanks to her awesome husband, her married name will place her work on the first shelf in the bookstore. Learn more at https://halleeadelman.com/
