Shannon is a certified Holistic Health Coach, a yoga teacher for over a decade, and a mother of two awesome kids. As a health advocate and wellness guide, she helps parents prioritize their own self-care and bring more awareness into their lives. Her dedication to helping other parents who struggle with balancing life came from her own need to recommit to self-care. After a tough divorce and messy transition into single parenthood, she realized that she couldn’t help her kids until she helped herself first. Shannon leaped into creativity to help her process undigested emotions and express herself an authentic-lee ally. She discovered creative outlets like writing, creating haikus, and her health coaching business - Grateful Life Health Coaching as a way to steer her mind in a positive direction and found healing along the way.
Shannon’s newest creative endeavor has been creating her new health coaching business - Grateful Life Health Coaching. She has woven together her love of educating about the body, mind, spirit connection, and passion for healthy living, and loves helping others expand their view of health. She believes that by incorporating healthy, sustainable food and lifestyle habits, anyone can create the life that they want!
Shannon lives in Lakewood, Ohio with her two kids and dog Hugo. She loves yoga, music, writing, poetry, traveling, cooking, being creative with her kids, and learning about anything that expands her mind.
