About Shannon

1. I became a caregiver to be able to help the ones who are able to do so themselves. I have a strong passion for putting others first. 2. I love being a care giver to put a smile on someone's face and to meet new clients and connect with them and their family's and become a part of their lives.m 3. An achievement I am proud of is in the studying and learning or becoming a caregiver my grandmother had stage 4 cancer, she wanted to stay in her home and I was able to provide the care she needed and whenever she needed it. She lived a year longer than they had predicted and that's what I wanted. She was happy and was able to attend and see a lot more than she had expected herself. 4. I'm a dedicated, hardworking, and love to over achieve what I do. I'm a single mother of a beautiful 2 year old girl, she changed my life for the better. I'm blessed to have a healthy daughter and I enjoy watching and helping her grow to be a young lady soon enough. She's helped me realize and push myself to become who I am today and see what means the most in life and still I strive to be the best I can be for her and everyone around me.
