The world needs people like you.
And you need people like me.

Hi, I’m Shannon.

I believe that each of us has the potential to create the change we want to see in the world. But too often we get stuck feeling like we can’t. I want to change that.

The world needs people like you. People gifted with compassion and a desire to make a difference. People who see a problem and look for a solution.

And you need people like me. Someone who’ll not only help you find the confidence to step up and make that difference, but also support you as you create a life you love.

“Discovering Shannon was among my highlights of the year – right up there with hearing, “You’re okay, it’s benign.” If you’re ready for some hot-knife-through-butter change, you can’t do better than her coaching.”

Coaching since the dawn of the iPod.

My coaching career started back in the days when the iPod was just hitting the shelves, and Blackberry was the peak of mobile technology. My have things changed.

Since then, I have coached hundreds of people to find focus, get clear and maintain momentum. My clients have written books, run marathons, started and grown world-changing businesses.

But thousands of hours of experience is not enough. To keep offering my clients the best in transformational coaching, I have been collecting certificates, qualifications and professional development experiences for decades. I’m certified as a Trainer of NLP, Master Practitioner of NLP, Coach and Hypnotherapist. I have a bachelor’s in Humanities from Scripps College, and have spent semesters studying at McGill University in Montreal and at American University in Washington, D.C. I also have hundreds of continuing education hours in coaching, writing, finance and small business development.

But most importantly, I have over 13 years experience coaching clients through ambitious projects and massive life changes.

Walking the talk and climbing those mountains – literally.

I take my self-development seriously and I’m on a continuing quest to be the best life coach to my clients that I can possible be.
I don’t just talk the talk, though. A pleasant side-effect of my line of work is that I’ve coached myself into some pretty exciting achievements:


From couch potato
to mountain climber.


From avowed non-runner
to Boston Marathoner.


From corporate cog
to running my own business.

“I hired Shannon because I was deeply stalled – and increasingly panicked and discouraged by that. What I got was immediate relief and motion – as quickly and easily as promised (literally overnight). I just started doing what needed doing again.”
