"Shannon is a hard-working young woman who is looking for make her mark as an actress and writer. With her doubt and imagination, I have no doubt she will. She is a stand out in everything she does." 

- Bruce Hunter, Award-winning poet and author of "Two O'Clock Creek" and "In Bears House". 


"Shannon has a gift of writing and now her gift has gotten her recognized by Chicken Soup for the Soul. My wife and daughter loved Shannon's story, "Her Final Lesson" and I think readers of all backgrounds with be just as mesmerized as were." 

- Ken Griffith


 "I remember coming across Shannon’s enlightened story “Her Final Lesson” she shared in the book, Chicken Soup for the Soul- Dreams and Premonitions back in 2015. Her story touched me so deeply as it brought hope & encouragement into my life. I wasn’t going crazy after all! I was one year into my very own spiritual awakening therefore her dream visitation resonated with the afterlife scenarios I too have been experiencing. Since than, I have written my very own book. Thank you Shannon for your authenticity, inspiration & sharing your light!" -Cindy S. Jurado 


 "Shannon is devoted to her craft. Her process is fascinating to watch. The commitment to every character she takes on and the level of detail she puts into every performance is nothing short of extraordinary." - Corry Ng, Actor 


"Shannon is an amazing producer, who is well versed in the intricacies of multi-media and capturing the eye of the viewer. While appearing a guest speaker on the development of Welcome to The Real World, I felt welcomed and supported from the moment I stepped onto the set.

Shannon was able to manage multiple roles in front of and in behind the scenes ensuring that the content of the message; it's delivery and visual representation, matched the expectation of the show. 

Although I was a novice at speaking in front of the camera, Shannon was quick to guide me through the process. Her encouraging words gave me the confidence to become one with the camera.

I am sincerely in her debt,Thank you Shannon."
