About Shannon

My name is Shannon Smith and I am 24 years old. I have been a CNA for 5 years now and love what I do. Originally I chose to become a CNA to move up the ladder to a nursing degree, but since changed my mind and have enjoyed taking care of people as I work to my final educational goal of radiology. Most people say I wear my heart on my sleeve and am very empathetic. I can always sense when something is wrong or nothing someone so I can help them. Taking care of others is something I feel is very important.
