Meet Shannon


At an early age, I had an insatiable interest in how people think, express themselves, and display certain behaviors evident in their body language and facial expressions.

Intuition, coupled with an intense curiosity and love for finding solutions to various problems has enabled me to present ideas and solutions that are unique.

As a student, I would sketch my notes in class and my thoughts at home. In those days, children who drew all the time were seen as “goof-offs” and “not doing their homework properly.”

In time, I discovered that what I did naturally by taking visual sketch notes, was called Graphic Recording and is coveted by top Fortune 500 companies.

While complex conversations are presented, Graphic Recorders illustrate and summarize key points by drawing simple, easy-to-understand graphic images, metaphors, and symbols.

Studies show those who do graphic recording listen and understand on multiple levels. The live drawing of conversations, seminars, workshops, and brainstorming brings greater clarity. Participants who watch visual sketch-noting have a 65% increase in retention and recall.

With my graphic recording talent,  love for cartooning, and passion for emotional healing as a Professional Life Coach—(which I became after 30 years in ministry and social work)—Shannon is an effective Creative Life Coach.

Shannon resides in Colorado, where she enjoys opportunities to share her unique skills to empower individuals and groups through her nonprofit to understand their personality types, motivations, strengths, and weaknesses to help them find their way in this world without shame, punishment, or fear.

When others ask how they too can have a healthy relationship with their children and others, I tell them that the first step is to, “Notice!” Pay attention! 

“A Picture is worth a thousand words!”
