Her nearly 30 years of experience caring for persons with dementia has given Shannon a comprehensive understanding of the disease. She finds ways to walk with them on their downward journey with great respect, patience and love. My husband's eyes always lit up when Shannon arrived. She brought him deep joy and comfort. She became and will always remain a treasured part of our family.
We hired Shannon to be my father's companion a few days a week when he was in the last stages of dementia with Lewy Bodies. The moment we met her, we knew she would be perfect. She has that rare combination of genuine goodness and kindness, with a terrific sense of humor. She and my dad became fast friends and over the last few months of his life she became invaluable to our family. She comforted my mom when dad became hospitalized and then took charge of all of the details surrounding hospice and care for the dying. She made sure we were getting updates so mom didn't have to relay information. We were so grateful that we didn't have to focus on anything but saying goodbye to dad. We now consider her a part of the family and couldn't recommend her more! Anyone would be so lucky to have her!

Shannon cared for my Father in the late stages of dementia. She is so kind, patient, compassionate and a caring person. She and my father had a very special relationship--they just "got" eachother. She would speak to my dad's soul and let him process though his feelings. He was safe with her and he knew it. Shannon is part of our family now and we conside her like a sister. You win the lottery with Shannon!

I met Shannon through a family connection and instantly felt at ease with her kind, loving spirit. She saw me struggling after I got a cancer diagnosis and offered to help me find peace of mind. I was unsure but open to the experience. What I found was her warm, caring, loving personality radiating concerned intelligence and guidance for me. This helped me feel confidence in how I should proceed and I would highly recommend Shannon as a coach, healer and end-of-life doula!

"Shannon is a ray of sunshine wherever she is present...and present she always was in the 15+ years I worked with her in long-term care. Her compassion not only for her residents but their families has been unmatched since she moved on to continue her passion for giving and helping others. Her desire to comfort people and show respect in every aspect of life helped me in continuing my 25 years of long term 'life' care of people--not just 'residents'. Shannon's empathy and compassion will always be an inspiration!"

"I contacted Shannon and asked for a healing for my 12 year-old daughter who had sustained a sports injury. After she channeled the healing energy, we spoke, and she shared with me some insightful information. I asked if she would share this with my daughter and she was happy to do so. Although there was much to the reading, Shannon told my daughter specific information regarding the physical location on my daughter's body that received an intense healing and she asked her if that's where she was experiencing pain. My daughter had an astonished look on her face and asked, "How did you know?' We both thought the whole experience was amazing and will surely contact her again!"
