Poverty. Child Abuse and Neglect. Sexual Assault. Domestic Violence.
If you aren’t a survivor, then statistically, you are very likely intimately connected to someone who is. Are you ready to explore social stigmas against survivors and build toward community reconciliation and growth?
Using a first-person perspective, Shannon’s unique worldview will shift audiences, especially where individuals haven’t always known safety and security, have disrupted patterns of generational poverty, are comfortable in gray areas of understanding life and relationships, or are ready to believe in the power of self-agency, awareness, and choices. She specializes in topics of trauma-informed communities, sexual and child abuse prevention and intervention, sexual assault prevention and healing, and domestic violence awareness.
Shannon’s passion is to encourage people to embrace challenges, rise from failures and mistakes, and rebuild. She is a former foster child, first-generation high school and college graduate, abuse survivor, and champion for vulnerable community members.
