About Shannon

U actually became a care giver 6 years ago I kind of fell into that position looking for employment at first but never realized how much I was in love with just helping people. It became my passion , something I really enjoyed. And it was also lessons too as I taught my clients new things they have also showed me new forms of communications different ways of listening. There was a client that wouldn't eat and kind of really didn't have the Patience to sit and eat always wanted to grab food and run to eat it. I would with him really hard to get him to sit during meals I would sit with him everyday for about 8 months and over that period of time I noticed that he was siting longer and longer. I was just so excited he was now at a place where he could stand to sit through a whole meal and no interrupions. He even noticed cause he. Would point to the chair now before meals. It's just amazing that with dedication to something can really help you reach achievement
